TransLink is introducing Compass Mini as another way to pay for transit in Metro Vancouver.
As the name suggests, Compass Mini looks just like a small Compass Card that attaches easily to keychains and backpacks, TransLink said.
Compass Mini works the same as the Compass Card and Compass Wristband: Tap in and out when travelling on transit and reload online at a Compass Vending Machine, by phone or in person.
There is a $6 refundable deposit when you purchase a Compass Mini.
“The launch of Compass Mini is a part of our commitment to enhance the customer experience,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond.
“Compass Wristbands have been a real hit and I’m sure customers will enjoy the convenience and practicality of the new Compass Mini.”
TransLink will release 5,000 blue adult Minis and 2,500 orange concession Minis on December 6.
TransLink customers can pick up the mini at the Compass Customer Service Centre at Stadium–Chinatown Station, from Monday to Friday, 7:30 am to 5 pm, and Saturday, December 7, from 10 am to 4 pm.
The mini is also available at the West Coast Express Office in Waterfront Station, Monday to Friday, from 6:45 am to 6 pm.
