BC extends U-Pass to all provincial public institutions

June 10, 2010

As promised by BC Premier Gordon Campbell in last year's provincial election, the BC government has adopted a province-wide U-Pass program for students at all public colleges and universities. In Metro Vancouver, students will pay $30 a month for a system-wide U-Pass, compared to $81 they would pay for a monthly pass. Starting this September, U-Pass rates at Langara College and Capilano University will be decreased to $30 per month. Rates for UBC and SFU students will remain the same until September 1, 2011, when they will be eligible to pay the same subsidized rates as other students. BC News Release
