What is the U-Pass?
The Universal Bus Pass (U-Pass) is service of the Student Society that provides all Camosun, UVic, and Royal Roads students with unlimited access to public transit in Greater Victoria at a significant savings over the $85/month that students would pay for an adult monthly bus pass. The program was established in 1999 by referendum of students and is one of the most used programs of the CCSS. The U-Pass works anywhere in the Greater Victoria Regional transit service area, but not in other locations in BC.
U-Pass for Enrolled Students
Order your U-Pass sticker from the Camosun Library website and book a time to pick it up.
Who is eligible?
All students taking at least one credit course are charged for a four-month pass. The charges appear on your Camosun fee statement. This compulsory program makes transportation to Camosun affordable, eases parking and traffic congestion, and reduces the demand to pave more of our campus for parking lots. All students are required to participate in the program to achieve a very low price of 25% of the actual cost!
