The U-Pass is a Universal Transit Pass which provides unlimited access to Winnipeg Transit services for full-time students in exchange for a discounted mandatory fee. The U-pass has increased public transit access and usage for students accessing UM campuses. Only students who reside outside of Winnipeg can opt-out of the U-pass program.

UM also has a membership to GoManitoba, a platform that connects users and eases travel by helping to facilitate carpools, promote public transit use where available, and match bike and walk mentors with each other. GoManitoba saves time, money and reduces traffic congestion.

More than 100 level 1 EV charging stations are available for use by the campus community. Level 2 and 3 stations are planned in the development of new buildings.
