Arc Card Information for Students

University of Alberta students can purchase their Arc Card at participating retailers and register their card on the U-Pass App. Arc Cards can also be purchased at SUBmart while supplies last.

At the start of the term, it can take up to 7 days for your card to register as "Active" on the U-Pass App. While waiting for your U-Pass to be activated, Edmonton Transit Services will accept your ONEcard as valid fare on any public transit between September 2nd and 8th.

If you already have an Arc Card you do not need to purchase a new one. The same card will be functional as long as you have been assessed the U-Pass fee on Bear Tracks.

U-Pass Eligibility

If you have not been assessed the U-Pass fee but believe you meet the criteria to receive one, you may opt-in to the fee using the Service Request Form on the Office of the Registrar's website.

More details on ETS's new Arc system can be found here.
