The Universal Transit Pass

U-Pass Logo

The "U" in U-Pass BC stands for "Universal". A U-Pass BC gives students access to bus, SeaBus and SkyTrain services within Metro Vancouver, as well as discounts on West Coast Express.

All eligible students pay for their U-Pass BC as part of their student fees. By having everyone contribute to the program, the cost per student is significantly lower.

Load your U-Pass BC onto your Compass Card. Link your card and request your U-Pass BC each month before you travel.

 

Through a partnership between the Province of British Columbia and TransLink, the U-Pass BC program is open to all public, post-secondary schools across Metro Vancouver. Participation is determined by student referendum at each eligible institution.
