MADISON (WKOW) – Riders who have an unlimited riding pass on Madison Metro buses will be required to show identification.
Starting on Monday, an employment or school photo ID will be required because there have been some concerns that the bus passes are being used fraudulently.
University of Wisconsin students and employees have unlimited ride passes and they are non-transferable.
Authorities said if the users don't have their IDs, the passes will be confiscated and a 1-day pass will be offered.
UW and UW Health employees who have their passes confiscated can get a replacement for $20. UW students should contact the bus program office.
The university said no identification is needed for the free campus bus routes.
