We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses may be switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service, but is experiencing delays in the Tri-City and Vancouver areas.

Expo and Millennium Lines are running consistently, but with reduced frequency due to the need to have staff on each train to watch for weather-related problems on the tracks. Please be prepared to wait longer on the platform between trains.

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.

 

Ten post-secondary institutions in Metro Vancouver currently participate in the program:

  • University of British Columbia
  • Simon Fraser University
  • Capilano University
  • Langara College
  • Emily Carr University of Art & Design
  • Vancouver Community College
  • Douglas College
  • Kwantlen Polytechnic University
  • British Columbia Institute of Technology
  • Nicola Valley Institute of Technology
