Rock Region METRO

With rising costs, environmental concerns, and the stress of commuting, public transit is on the rise. Thanks to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s partnership with Rock Region METRO, our employees and students can ride the city bus for free, using the Trojan’s U-Pass.

Ride for Free

UA Little Rock Rock Region METRO bus partnership

Employees and students can pick up their Trojan’s U-Pass at the I.D. Card Office, Room 114, in the Donaghey Student Center. The pass is a sticker that goes on your UA Little Rock ID card.

The sticker is issued in January and is good through the summer semester. Riders will need to pick up a new sticker for the fall semester and semesters after that.
