UPass for Staff and Faculty

University of Lethbridge continuing or term academic and non-academic employees are now eligible for UPass.



The University is pleased to offer employees in continuing or term academic and non-academic positions the opportunity to opt in to the Universal Transit Pass (UPass) program starting September 2019. The UPass program offers an environmentally friendly and sustainable program.

The current cost for the UPass per term is $82 (subject to change based on City of Lethbridge Transit rates) and can be paid in person at the Cash Office in Anderson Hall between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. You will need to provide your U of L ID number and picture ID.  The fee can be paid by cash, cheque or debit card. The cost will be the same, regardless of when you make the purchase during the term, and will not be prorated.

Terms run through the following months:
Fall — September 1 to December 31
Spring — January 1 to April 30
Summer — May 1 to August 31

When you buy the UPass for the first time, the receipt from the Cash Office will need to be taken to the Information Technology Solutions Centre in TH218 to get your ID card, which is required to ride Lethbridge Transit. Once you have this ID card, you will not have to do this step again. The UPass will expire at the end of each term if payment has not been made for the new term.
