TransLink seeks beta testers for Compass card system
Want to get a chance to use the Compass card system before its official launch? If you're a regular transit rider, consider become a beta tester!
TransLink is looking for 5,000 transit-taking volunteers to test the new system, which includes using the Compass card to tap in and out of SkyTrain and Seabus fare gates as well as select card readers on buses and the West Coast Express. Participants will also be required to send feedback to TransLink about their experience.
Compass cards will be provided free of charge to participants for testing purposes; however, volunteers will still be required to purchase fares and the test cards will be deactivated at the end of the beta test.
Beta testers must be 19 years old by July 15 and residents of the Metro Vancouver area.
Applicants must submit their requests by August 9 at 11:59 p.m.
The beta test will take place this fall.
