Testing all gates closed at more SkyTrain stations

Gates closed testing at Sapperton Station

All gates closed testing continues at Sapperton Station today

We are moving forward with full gate closure testing at many more stations over the next few weeks!

Reports from tests so far have been great with riders using Compass fare products and others being exposed to it and learning how to use Compass tickets.

Like our previous tests, we will have SkyTrain Attendants, Customer Service Attendants and supervisors on both sides of the fare gates to make sure everyone is able to get through. If you show up to the fare gates using old fare media (FareSavers or bus tickets), staff will replace it with a Compass Ticket.

Have you been through fare gates that are all closed yet? Questions about testing the gates? Comment below!

    When will you be closing all gates permanently? The single gate at my preferred entrance at Columbia station is always open, causing me to forget to tap in, and getting charged a 3 zone fare when I tap out.

    Hi James, actually we just released the news this morning that full gate closures will begin on April 4 and finish April 8. So that week is when you’ll see all the gates close! Here is the Buzzer link that includes the press release:
    Thanks! ^ac
