It’s time to celebrate!! We are quickly approaching ONE BILLION Compass taps across the system and we want to commemorate this special occasion and to thank YOU, the Compass user, we have an exciting contest where you could win one of ten, special edition #Canada150 Compass Cards loaded with $50 in Stored Value!
Update: Around 8:30 a.m. on August 24, 2017, a customer who boarded a bus on the 100 22nd Station/Marpole Loop tapped in on the bus’s mobile validator to record the billionth tap since the Compass system was first switched on for testing in September 2013!
