Access to Campus


Getting to campus

You can access the UBC Okanagan campus using a variety of transportation methods. Numerous wheelchair-accessible city buses arrive from surrounding communities from early in the morning until late in the evening.

Individuals who are not able to use the bus system because of their disabilities may be able to use the HandyDART. The HandyDART is a shared-ride public transit service that uses specially equipped vehicles designed to carry passengers with physical or cognitive disabilities who are unable to use public transit without assistance.

U-Pass Exemptions 

Any UBCO student that meets one or more of the following criteria may request an exemption:
  • Is a registered user of HandyDart in the Kelowna region.
  • Has a demonstrated disability which has been verified by the UBCO Disability Resource Centre (UNC 214); and who cannot use public transit as a result of this disability.
