The lineups for Compass Card wristbands are already out of control (PHOTOS)

Earlier this morning, TransLink’s Compass Card wristband was released to the public for the very first time.

Only 2,000 have been made available in the first batch, with 1,000 baby blue-coloured wristbands for riders with an adult fare and 1,000 orange-coloured wristbands for riders with a concession fare.

The lineups for these wristbands have been nothing short of crazy, with social media users citing more than 200 riders waiting to get a wristband.

One user mentioned that some buyers have been leaving the Compass Customer Service office with multiple wristbands at a time.

TransLink has revealed that they’ve implemented a limit of four per person.

Here’s a quick look at the lineups building outside of the Customer Service Offices:

Update: Translink has confirmed that the wristbands are sold out. They’re likely to be restocked in February 2019.
