TransLink awarded $34M for U-Pass program

Posted on April 8, 2013

VANCOUVER, B.C. — The provincial government committed $34.5 million to help TransLink offset the costs of its U-Pass B.C. over the next three years, so students can purchase a transit pass for $35 per month — saving them between $56 and $135 each month, according to The Province.

The current U-Pass program expires March 31, but students at 10 schools voted to continue it for the next three years. The discounted pass is an initiative from the government, TransLink, students and their schools, to help encourage 140,000 students to use public transit. For the full story, click here.
