Local graduates eligible for GradPASS

A record number of BC Transit communities – including Abbotsford and Mission – are helping high school graduates celebrate their accomplishments with GradPASS.

The special pass offers two days of free, unlimited transit travel during the month of June. A total of 19,500 GradPASS cards will be given to Grade 12 students in 30 communities.

GradPASS was first introduced in Vancouver in 1988 as part of the Counterattack Program.

The system is easy to use: Students simply scratch off their two chosen travel days and show the card to their bus driver. GradPASS is not transferable and can only be used on participating local systems.
