Public transit is the most popular way to get to campus!

TransLink, the regional public transit agency, provides bus service to UBC seven days a week. Choosing public transit offers you time to relax and do something more productive and less stressful than sitting behind the wheel of your car. 

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.

All transit passes are valid on bus routes 68 and 70 which serve UBC’s South Campus residents and UBC’s many attractions, including the Museum of Anthropology, Nitobe Gardens, the Chan Centre, and the UBC Botanical Gardens. 

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 trip or look at a map of transit routes.

Another bus alternative is the privately operated Beyond-Shuttle Bus operated by Beyond Travels Inc. The service connects UBC to Surrey with an express, pre-booked, comfortable service. More details can be found on their website at
