Load your Compass Card

You will need to buy an Adult Compass Card from one of the TransLink options. See where to buy compass cards.

Once you have your Compass Card, you will need to follow a couple of simple steps before you can start using the U-Pass BC on your Compass Card:

  1. Sign into the U-Pass BC website
  2. Select "Simon Fraser University" from the drop down menu
  3. Log in using your SFU computing ID (it's the same as your SFU email login)
  4. Link your Compass Card by entering the 20-digits and CVN on the back of your Compass Card
  5. Request your U-Pass BC

Please note

It can take up to 24 hours for your U-Pass BC to be loaded onto your Compass Card, so make sure you request your U-Pass BC at least the day before the end of the month. Without a valid U-Pass BC on your Compass Card, you are responsible for paying your transit fare.

Request your U-Pass BC every month

You will need to log into the U-Pass BC website each month to request your monthly U-Pass BC be loaded onto your Compass Card. You will be able to request your next month's U-Pass BC starting on the 16th of the current month.
