It’s been two months since we launched Tap to Pay and we are happy to share our customers have embraced this new payment option in a big way.

To date, there have been 160,000 unique users who have tapped their contactless credit cards and mobile wallets—a combined—more than one million times! 

If you are a tourist in Metro Vancouver or an infrequent transit rider, Tap to Pay means no more ticket line-ups, digging for change, or worrying about fare zones.

This is perfect for sports fans and concert goers heading down to BC Place or Rogers Arena to catch an event. Just tap your contactless credit card and be on your way! Taking transit to these games is also a great way to interact and banter with fellow fans about the match.

Compass remains the best choice for regular users as it offers discounts.

As always, remember—tap your card, not your wallet. Check out 5 things you need to know about Tap to Pay!

TransLink was the first transit agency in Canada and one of the first in North America to launch this new payment option.

With Tap to Pay, customers can travel across all modes in the same way as customers with Compass Cards. Customers can tap card readers with a contactless Visa or Mastercard credit card, or a device with an Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay wallet.
