U-Pass BC on Compass Card


Students who are registered in on-campus classes, co-op or practicum placements that are a minimum of three credits will continue to be eligible for a U-Pass BC and will be charged the U-Pass BC fee. This means that the majority of students, who are taking online classes only, will not be eligible for a U-Pass BC and will not be charged.

PLEASE NOTE – TransLink’s U-Pass BC website remains unavailable.

Eligible students who used their U-Pass BC in February 2021 will automatically receive a U-Pass BC for March 2021. If you are a new student or have an issue please call Compass at 604-398-2042.

For validation purposes you will need to provide your full Compass Card, Student ID and the name of the School you attend.

Please be sure to have your Compass Card and Student ID numbers ready.
