64 transit riders score Tap In to Win prizes, one wins free transit for five years

Anchal is the winner of five years of free transit

Transit riders hopped on board for our second Tap In to Win sweepstakes and several of them hopped off as winners.

Customers joined by registering their Compass Cards to earn entries on their transit trips. From August to November, qualified entrants were eligible to win weekly prizes including the grand prize of free transit for five years!

63 transit riders won a weekly prize ranging from Compass Monthly Passes, TransLink Store merchandise, Stay & Play packages, Electric Bikes, Electric Scooters, bike and car sharing memberships, passes to local attractions, and prize packages for the Vancouver Giants, BC Lions, and Whitecaps.

The Tap In to Win sweepstakes is one of our ways to say thanks to our customers for choosing transit. The prizes took customers on fun experiences to share with loved ones and opened doors to try something new.

Winners like Ankit enjoyed a Whitecaps game with his nephew who’s an avid fan, and Leanne celebrated her birthday from the skies with a Vancouver City Seaplane Tour from Harbour Air.


Other winners are making new memories with their Stay and Play packages which include a night stay at a hotel, a getaway to a local attraction, and gift cards for local restaurants.


Some winners added more ways to travel aside from taking transit as they took home new e-bikes and e-scooters, and memberships to car-share and bike-share services.

Winners like Yo Yo are sharing TransLink Store merch with their family members.


30 winners also saved money by winning 3-Zone Monthly Passes.

And finally, Anchal saved a whopping $12,000 by winning the grand prize of five years of free transit!
