Tapping with Compass has never been more convenient! We’re introducing Compass Mini as another way to pay for transit in Metro Vancouver. Compass Mini looks just like a small Compass Card that attaches easily to keychains and backpacks.
“The launch of Compass Mini is a part of our commitment to enhance the customer experience,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “Compass Wristbands have been a real hit and I’m sure customers will enjoy the convenience and practicality of the new Compass Mini.”
Compass Mini works the same as the Compass Card and Compass Wristband. Tap in and out when travelling on transit and reload online at a Compass Vending Machine, by phone or in person.
During its initial release, 5,000 adult Compass Minis and 2,500 concession Compass Minis will be available starting on December 6.
Visit the Compass Customer Service Centre at Stadium–Chinatown Station (Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, December 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
or the West Coast Express Office in Waterfront Station (Monday – Friday 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.) to pick up a Compass Mini while supplies last.
Just like any other Compass product, there is a $6 refundable deposit when purchasing your Compass Mini.
Compass Mini is the latest convenience upgrade we’ve made for our customers. Over the past year, TransLink has also:
- Added digital customer information kiosks to help commuters find transit routes and access live schedules across the system
- Introduced American Express as another credit card payment option allowing customers to tap their credit card at faregates to purchase an adult fare
- Opened a new SkyTrain Assistance Counter at Commercial–Broadway Station
