Fraser Valley/Victoria – – High school graduates from over 70 communities across British Columbia will be able to ride the bus for free for two days of their choice during the month of June thanks to the GradPASS program.
BC Transit and its partner communities are once again offering the popular GradPASS program for graduating Grade 12 students all over the province.
GradPASS was first introduced in Vancouver in 1988 to encourage safe transportation options during prom season for recent graduates. The Victoria Regional Transit System adopted the program in 1990, with other communities following suit over the years. Today, over 70 communities across the province offer GradPASS to new graduates at the end of May for their use in June.
To use their GradPASS, graduates only need to scratch off their two chosen travel days (does not need to be consecutive) and show the card to their bus driver at the time of boarding.
GradPASS cards will be distributed to local schools in late May.
