Getting Your Compass Card

To begin using U-Pass BC, you will need an adult-type Compass Card from TransLink if you do not already have one. The orange concession card cannot be used to load the U-Pass. Visit the Compass Card website for more details on where you can purchase a card.

Remember! The Langara Bookstore is a TransLink FareDealer location and will carry Compass Cards available to the general public.

Linking and Loading U-Pass BC Online

Once you have a Compass Card, you can log into the U-Pass BC website using your Langara Credentials. Follow the instructions on the website to link your account and request your U-Pass BC for the month. You will need to be registered in eligible courses and have paid your fees in full to do so. On or after the 16th of every month, simply go back to the website and request activation for the following month. 

Make sure to request your U-Pass BC as early as possible and before the end of the month, as it may take up to 24 hours to take effect!

Login Help! Use your Langara email account (Computer Login ID + @langara.ca) and Computer User ID Login Password to log into the Compass Card website. Find these by logging into the Student Information System and clicking "Manage Computer Accounts" on the left side menu.

Using your U-Pass BC

Your U-Pass BC is valid for travel in the month requested across all zones on TransLink service region buses, SeaBus, and SkyTrain and for discounted fares on West Coast Express.

You will need to carry a valid Langara Student ID card whenever you are using U-Pass BC. If you do not have one or need it replaced, please visit Information Technology. Regular studies students who do not yet have Student ID cards can use a Letter of Enrolment for identification, which can be downloaded from the Student Information System.
