The U-Pass BC program agreement is structured as a universal and mandatory program for students at participating post-secondary institutions, and it is this universal model that makes the affordability of the U-Pass BC program possible. For students who rely on the U-Pass BC program, this means savings of up to $538 on transit passes every single semester.
Certain students are exempt from the U-Pass BC program, including students with disabilities that preclude the use of conventional transit or HandyDART services, students who hold another transit pass for the entire semester, or students who have a valid U-Pass BC from another post-secondary institution.
Students registered online in courses coded as “online”, and students taking only non-credit courses, are not eligible for the U-Pass BC.
