Employee Bus Pass sign up for 2018

Dalhousie University is proud to provide for the 6th year running the discounted Employee Bus Pass Program. The SmartTrip program, which is a partnership between the Office of Sustainability and Halifax Transit, provides a 25% discount on all pass types.

The EPass program has two sign-up and renewal periods a year, and membership runs for a full year. If you are interested in receiving or renewing your EPass membership, this process is taking place in November.

Current EPass/LinkPass/XPass holders:
All current pass holders will have to fill out a renewal form and receive a 2018 sticker for their pass to be valid in 2018. The sticker can be sent through inter-departmental mail at your request through an email to rethink@dal.ca. Alternatively, you can visit room 512 of the Central Services Building on November 15th, 20th, or 22nd between 9am-2pm to fill out a form and/or receive your sticker. If we do not receive your renewal form by December 8th you will be removed from the program and be unable to receive a sticker for the upcoming year.

Leaving the Program:
Current pass holders who no longer wish to participate in the EPass program for the 2018 calendar year will be able to opt-out. If you are planning on opting out, written notice is preferred over a lack of renewal.

New sign-ups:
To sign-up, come to room 511 of the Central Services Building, 1236 Henry Street on November 9th between 11:30 am and 5 pm to fill out an enrolment form and have your photo taken. If you cannot make this time, please make alternative arrangements with the Office of Sustainability (rethink@dal.ca).  Before signing up, please read all program details found on our website.

To be eligible for this program you must be a Dalhousie permanent employee (full-time and part-time), full time grant paid, post-docs, or an associated employee. No casual employees will be able to participate. All employees must be paid directly through Dalhousie payroll and be employed until the end of December 2018.

If you have questions about the EPass program, eligibility, rates, or program duration, please contact Jennifer Allott, Office of Sustainability, at rethink@dal.ca, (902) 494-2015 or visit the frequently asked questions section of the EPass website.‚Äč
