    Will GoCards remain separate or be integrated with Translink’s Compass Card next year?

    Wow, isn’t THAT a blast from the past!

    I remember seeing that brochure the first time I received a GoCard!

    Steve: I believe they will continue to be separate. I’ll double check and comment again if I’m wrong.

    Derek and Eric: Yes, I love this graphic. It reminds me of that movie The Last Starfighter – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087597/
