All full-time SOGS members are part of the mandatory, universal bus pass program. This was put in effect after a March 2002 vote which was overwhelmingly in favour. The bus passes are only available to full-time graduate students and there is neither an opt-in option for part-time graduate students, nor an opt-out for the full-time graduate students.
If you are a full-time graduate student who is on co-op you will only be paying part-time fees for that term and will not be eligible for a bus pass during your co-op term. The bus pass fees are outlined on the fee information page.
All full-time SOGS members who are enrolled in the given term must simply present their student card in the SOGS Office during regular office hours to receive their pass.
