What is U-Pass BC?

U-Pass BC is a student transit program offered in partnership by the BCIT Student Association, Translink, the Province of British Columbia and BCIT. U-Pass BC enables eligible students to receive a three-zone pass valid for all TransLink Bus, SkyTrain and SeaBus services throughout Metro Vancouver. It also provides discounts on West Coast Express fares.

Proof of BCIT registration

If you do not have a BCIT Student ID Card, please ensure you carry proof of current BCIT registration with you when using transit. Proof may be a printout or screenshot from your myBCIT account with your current BCIT registration, clearly showing your name, ID number, and registration dates. Be sure to also carry a piece of photo ID with you.


In response to the successful Student Association’s 2019 Student Referendum, BCIT will continue to administer the U-Pass BC program. The fees for the U-Pass BC program are automatically added to your student fees. Below is the pricing from January 2020 to April 2025:
