MADISON - Riders who have an unlimited pass on Madison Metro buses will now have to show identification.

University of Wisconsin students and employees have unlimited ride passes. There are concerns the bus passes are being used fraudulently. So, beginning Monday, an employment or school photo ID will be required.

UW-Madison employee and student bus passes are non-transferable. So, 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. Students should contact the bus program office.

The university says no identification is needed for the free campus bus routes.
