Fellow UFV Students and SUS Members,
I am writing to you to announce that we have reached an agreement with BC Transit to allow SUS Members to enroll into the Summer 2020 U-Pass Program if they need to.
On April 21st, The SUS announced that: BC Transit suspended all UFV student benefits related to the U-Pass program for the Summer 2020 semester, and in order to support the COVID-19 preventive measures, all bus fees were waved for riders. On the same day, The SUS also announced that The U-Pass fee will not be collected for the Summer 2020 semester.
On May 2nd, BC Transit sent another communication announcing that the fare collection will resume on all buses effective June 1, 2020.
Today we would like to announce that:
Starting June 8th, 2020, The SUS, with the support of The UFV Office of the Registrar, The UFV Campus Card office, and BC Transit, will now be able to provide The Summer 2020
U-PASS to currently registered UFV students (taking classes) who need it.
How to get your Summer 2020 U-PASS:
Starting June 8th 2020, if you are a currently registered UFV student (taking classes), and you require a Summer 2020 U-PASS, please contact the UFV Office of the Registrar at:
Once UFV O-Reg have verified your eligibility for the U-Pass, they will provide you with the U-Pass sticker on the back of your Campus Card. Please note that card-encoding is not required at this time.
The Summer 2020 U-Pass is valid until August 31st 2020.
The U-Pass fee ($38.47) will be debited to your UFV account.

For those holding lost or damaged Campus Cards or for new students that don’t have a Campus Card yet:
Due of the COVID-19 Health Emergency, we are currently unable to provide a U-Pass to anyone without a valid Campus Card. The UFV Campus Card office is currently working on installing all the necessary preventive measures to ensure the safety of their visitors so that new cards can be issued.

We will post and share any updates in these regards on our communication channels.
