U-Pass and Compass Card

Full-time students are eligible to participate in the U-Pass BC program using their Compass Card that provides unlimited access to public transit across Metro Vancouver.

Getting to campus on transit

Public Transit is the most popular way to get to and from campus. 15 bus routes link UBC to Metro Vancouver’s municipalities, and two on-campus routes serve the on-campus community.

TransLink is Metro Vancouver’s regional transportation authority responsible for all regional transit options. Plan your journey using Metro Vancouver’s transit system or look at a map of transit routes.

Getting to campus from the airport via transit

The Canada Line is a rapid-transit system that runs from the airport to downtown Vancouver. The Canada Line does not go to UBC but to get to campus, get off at Broadway City Hall and take the 99 B-Line bus to the end of the line.

You can plan your transit trip before you arrive at the airport.

Depending on the day of the week and time you are leaving the airport, the cost of public transit from the airport ranges from $7.75 to $9.00.
