Compass Update: Pre-loaded Compass Cards now available at Fare Dealers!

Great news for Compass users and those who are making the switch!

Most FareDealers now sell $10 pre-loaded Stored Value Adult and Concession Compass Cards for $16 – these cards include $10 of Stored Value and the standard $6 card deposit.

This means you can buy your card and hop right on transit without having to load any other products!

Speaking of Compass, Monthly Pass users are able to load February’s pass onto their Compass Card today!

You can purchase next month’s pass online or by phone starting on the 16th of each month or at a Compass Vending Machine starting on the 20th of each month.

This way, you can load the pass early and avoid any last minute rush at the end of each month.


You can load a Monthly Pass at a Compass Vending Machine (CVM) – it loads immediately!

You can find CVMs at all SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express stations, BC Ferries Tsawwassen and Horseshoe Bay terminals and 18 different London Drugs locations across the region.

You also have the option of AutoLoad when you register your card at

This means your Monthly Pass or Stored Value will always load automatically so you never have to worry about it!

Balance protection is another great benefit of registering your card!

So, if your card is ever lost or stolen, you won’t lose the products you’ve purchased.
