UBC Okanagan ProPass!

Enrolment for the Winter 2023 ProPASS Period is now open!

UBCO employees are eligible to enroll in the ProPASS Program to receive a 50% discount on adult monthly bus passes.

Save money on your commute, catch up on your reading, and reduce GHG emissions by choosing transit. With ProPASS, the cost of transit passes is only $35/month (employees must enroll and pay for an entire four-month Pass Period). That’s half the cost of UBCO’s cheapest parking pass.

ProPASS is a program offered by BC Transit and their regional partners. UBCO has worked with the City of Kelowna to bring ProPASS to UBCO to support employees in choosing transit for their commute.

Visit the UBCO ProPASS webpage for more information on the program and to enrol. Be sure to enrol and pay for your passes by Dec 31!


How much does it cost to participate in the ProPASS program?

  • The total cost for the Pass Period is $140 ($35 per month) for UBCO Staff and Faculty. (Regular Monthly Adult Transit Pass – $70 per month – less 15% ProPASS Discount and 35% UBCO Sustainable Transportation Subsidy)

How do I pay for my ProPASSes?

  • Once you’ve completed the online UBCO ProPASS Enrolment form, you will receive a link to the ProPASS Online Payment form to pay for your passes by Credit Card or INTERAC Online (available for select financial institutions and credit unions). If you require an alternative payment method to pay for your passes, please visit the Parking Services Office in person to pay with Cash or Debit. Exact cash is required (no cash is held onsite).

Can I start or withdraw from the ProPASS Program in the middle of a Pass Period?

  • No, you must commit to a full four-month Pass Period (example Winter: January – April). Once enrolment has closed at the start of each Pass Period, new participants must wait for enrolment to open for the next pass period.

I work on campus but am not employed by UBCO, can I participate in ProPASS?

  • Eligible groups may participate in ProPASS accessing the standard 15% discount of off regular monthly transit passes ($238 per Pass Period). At this time online/credit card payments are not available for Non-UBCO Employees, payments must be made with Cash or Debit. Eligible groups may include UBC SUO staff, UBCO Daycare staff, or student groups who are not eligible for UPASS. Contact campus.planning@ubc.ca for more information or to determine if you are part of an eligible group before enrolling using the online form.
