The discounted U-Pass will not be moved to the new Compass Card until 2014, according to News 1130.

Nearly 10,000 people will be beta-testing TransLink’s Compass Card in September to work out the kinks before its public release.

Post-secondary students will continue to use their U-Pass on transit until a new U-Pass Compass Card program is implemented.

Currently, the U-Pass costs post-secondary students $35 a month ($140 per term). The Compass Cards will cost students an additional $6, however, this will be refunded if the card is returned with no outstanding charges.

Once purchased, students will be required to register the cards online to load “all-you-can-travel U-Pass benefits” on the card. Once registered, students will need to request their U-Pass benefits online every month.
