Last October public were invited to submit names for Translink’s new electronic farecard. Nominations were made, votes were placed and we now have the Compass Card. Beating out starfish and Tpass, the winning name was submitted by Oleksiy Gayda from Burnaby.
I’ve used the Charlie Card in Boston, Oyster Card in London, and MetroCards in New York so it will be great to have a re-loadable electronic card in Vancouver (better late than never). Translink will have the Compass Card system up and running for 2013 with installtion at stations commencing immediately followed by trials in the Fall of 2012.
