Campus Identification Required to Ride

You must swipe your UB Card when you get on a UB Stampede bus. This policy ensures that UB Stampede buses are available for free to members of the campus community, while also helping to ensure safety and security.

How to Swipe Your Card

When you get on a UB Stampede bus, simply swipe your UB Card through the card reader at the front of the bus. The screen will change to either green or red.

Green Light Red Light

Indicates the card belongs to a current UB student, faculty or staff member. You are free to take a seat.

Indicates the card does not belong to a current member of the campus community. The driver will ask you about your status at UB and (if relevant) the nature of your visit to campus.


Drivers may allow you to board without swiping a UB Card, based on the following circumstances:

  • Missing or lost card (the card is not presented and/or the person genuinely appears to not be able to locate it on their person)
  • Damaged card (the card is presented but the magnetic stripe is obviously compromised)
  • UB affiliate identification is presented
  • Event special requests scheduled through Parking and Transportation Services
  • Visitor, accompanied by a member of the campus community (only two guests allowed per student, faculty or staff member)
  • Passenger presents a ticket or ticket stub for an event that day or evening
  • Large campus events, as identified by Parking and Transportation Services
  • At the direction of Parking and Transportation Services personnel
