A brief description of the program(s), (s), including availability, participation levels, and specifics about discounts or subsidies offered (including pre-tax options):

Since 2002, the University of Calgary has provided all full-time undergraduate and graduate students with the UPass. UPass holders have full access to available transit services during terms that they are enrolled in classes, which includes unlimited bus and CTrain travel. The UPass is funded in part through a compulsory fee for all full-time students in order to provide transit access to all students at a rate that is significantly lower (currently approximately a 70% discount) than regular price. Initially only available to undergraduate students for Fall and Winter terms, the program will be extended to include Spring and Summer semesters beginning in 2012.
