Those in possession of UW-Green Bay ID cards can still ride for free and board any city bus with a swipe of their card, thanks to the ongoing U-Pass deal. Those riding Green Bay Metro on Wednesday (Jan. 2), however, witnessed something new with a move to simplify ridership via the launch of an unlimited daily pass. The daily pass ($3 per adult, $2 students and $1.50 for seniors and those with disabilities) replaces the old paper transfer-ticket system. Monthly and weekly passes are still available, of course, and riders can still pay the single fare ($1.50, $1 or 75 cents) if they need to get from Point A to Point B with no transfer or return trip. If you know a potential rider without a UWGB ID who might be interested, more details are available.
