TransLink’s newest product, the Compass Mini, is already astoundingly popular.

Similar to the ultra-popular Compass Card Wristband, the Mini has already drawn in large crowds of transit riders looking to purchase the product. Social media users have already shared photos of massive lineup, some saying that an hour-long wait has already built up.

Transit staff have also announced on social media that due to the popularity and demand of the product, the initial four-card limit has been cut down to two.

An initial batch of 7,500 has been made available to the public, with 5,000 allotted as blue adult Minis and 2,500 being orange concession Minis.
