Compass is coming soon to West Coast Express

The convenience of the Compass fare-collection system arrives at West Coast Express (WCE), starting June 8, 2015! Once they receive cards, WCE customers will get to enjoy the many benefits of Compass, such as:

Here's what a Compass mobile validator looks like!

Here’s what a Compass mobile validator looks like!

  • Stored Value: add almost any value you want and pay-as-you-go
  • Online Purchasing: no more waiting at the vending machine to buy your fare
  • Balance Protection: with card registration, your funds are protected, even if your card is lost or stolen
  • AutoLoad: with card registration, you can set up automatic top ups or pass renewals so you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to top up

Staff will hand out Compass Cards to WCE Customers on the concourse at Waterfront Station during June. WCE stations will transition to Compass throughout the month, with two stations switching each weekend.

For WCE customers, once you have your card, load it with a Compass product using the Compass website (coming very soon) or at one of the new Compass Vending Machines—and join the 100,000 Compass users already tapping in and out across Metro Vancouver!

Not ready to make the switch? You can buy existing WCE products until June 26 at Waterfront Station and other WCE stations that haven’t switched over. The last day to use existing WCE products will be July 24. Ask a Station Attendant for more tips on the best Compass transition for you.

For all other customers, it’s business as usual. Compass Vending Machines along the WCE system will not sell Compass Cards at this time, and will sell WCE products only.
