Shuttle buses leaving from the Butantã subway station - USP ticket (BUSP)

The USP ticket (BUSP) is a card that allows free use by USP students and staff of the shuttle buses connecting the University City to the Butantã subway station. A temporary card is issued by the Postgraduate Studies Sections of each unit during the first months of enrollment at USP. The card has short period of validity, but students can request a permanent ticket through the Júpiter system. (source:
