Jule Bus Fares Waived for Dubuque College Students

Students attending Dubuque’s colleges will be able to ride The Jule, Dubuque’s public transit system, for free this school year.

The City Council voted in August to waive fares for college students ahead of the beginning of the 2023-24 academic year. College students had previously been charged the adult fare of $1.50 per ride. The elimination of fares for college students will provide an additional opportunity for students to travel around the city of Dubuque for shopping, entertainment, dining, recreation, and jobs.

To take advantage of the free rides, college students will be required to display a valid school ID for the 2023-24 school year until physical or digital passes through The Jule’s mobile app (MyJule) are available. The physical passes are expected to be ready in mid-September. The digital pass functionality is expected to be in the app in September.

The free rides will be available for students attending the following Dubuque institutions:
– Capri College
– Clarke University
– Emmaus Bible College
– Loras College
– Northeast Iowa Community College
– University of Dubuque
– Wartburg Theological Seminary

This new program is in addition to the City offering free rides to K-12 students who register for an annual Student Pass. The K-12 Student Passes can be obtained by completing the form here and returning it to the Intermodal Transportation Center. K-12 Student Passes are valid from August through July and must be renewed each school year.

Additional information about The Jule, including route schedules, maps, and bus tracking tools are available through the MyJule app and by visiting www.cityofdubuque.org/Jule.
