If you were one of the many that missed their chance at a Compass Card wristband, you’ll have another chance to purchase one starting today.
In response to overwhelming demand, TransLink has announced that a batch of 10,000 adult wristbands is now on sale.
The wristbands work the exact same as Compass Cards and can be reloaded online, at a vending machine, by phone, or in person.
Also similar to the card, TransLink users will pay a $6 refundable fee when they pick up a wristband.
A big question this time around will be whether the 10,000 wristbands is enough to meet consumer demand. Earlier this year, transit users flooded Compass Customer Service offices when TransLink released a batch of 3,000 wristbands.
Hundreds of passengers lined up and the wristbands sold out in two hours.
Compass Card wristbands can be purchased at TransLink’s Customer Service Centres, located at Stadium-Chinatown Station or the West Coast Express Office in Waterfront Station, while supplies last.
A delivery of Concession wristbands has also been ordered and will be released as soon as TransLink receives them from their supplier.
