U-Pass BC

All eligible SFU students said goodbye to the monthly paper U-Pass BC card and hello to the COMPASS CARD!

Get your Compass Card by swiping your SFU student ID at the kiosks located near the Registrar and Information Services offices. Locations and business hours can be found here.  

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 log in)
  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

It can take up to 24 hours for the U-Pass BC to be loaded onto your Compass Card, so make sure to request it before the end of the month. Once the U-Pass BC is loaded onto your Compass Card, you can start to tap in and tap out on transit. The U-Pass BC on your Compass Card is only valid when you have your SFU student ID card with you. 

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

If you have questions about U-Pass BC program, including eligibility and fees, please contact the SFU U-Pass BC office at upass@sfu.ca or 778-782-6930.

TransLink has a one-minute video on loading your U-Pass BC on your Compass Card and more information can be found on their website. Questions about the Compass Card should be directed to TransLink at AskCompass.ca or 604-398-2042.
