Compass Tickets—Coming Soon to a SkyTrain Station Near You!

Starting this week, Compass Tickets are available at Braid, Lougheed and Sapperton stations. This marks the start of our phased roll out of Compass Tickets.

We know you’re excited about Compass, and now you can start traveling with Compass Tickets as they become available at SkyTrain stations over the next two months. Compass Cards will become available in October. Please note, Compass Tickets need to be tapped in and out, too!

You can purchase Compass Tickets at Compass Vending Machines (CVMs), which are being activated in phases. CVMs will be turned on at several stations each week between now and the end of October.

With the phased roll out of CVMs, we’re giving our customers the time and support they need to adapt to the new system. We’ll have extra staff at each station to assist people and answer questions.

In order to help customers adjust with ease, until December 31, 2015, traditional Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) will remain in place at all Millennium/Expo stations; and one cash-only TVM will remain at each Canada Line station.

Customers who already have Compass Cards can also use CVMs to load Stored Value and check their balance.
