    U-Pass BC

    • FALL 2017/SPRING 2018

      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. In addition to providing you with low-cost travel, U-Pass BC encourages you to make transit part of your lifestyle, which helps reduce greenhouse gasses while creating a sustainable transit program.

      How to obtain your Compass Card

      If you don't already have a Compass Card, you can easily obtain one from TransLink; the cost is $6.00. If you have a Compass Card from the previous term, you can continue to use this card - you do not need to obtain another card. Following are some ways to get your Compass Card:

      • Vending machines at Sky Train stations and Seabus terminals
      • London Drugs, Safeway, Shopper's Drug Mart, etc. throughout the Lower Mainland
      • Online at the TransLink website
      • By Phone at TransLink at 604-398-2042 

      Please note the university does not distribute/dispense Compass Cards.
