TransLink users may now purchase a Compass Card and load their monthly pass to it. As of November 1, vendors in the FareDealer network will be able to sell Compass Cards.

Customers can load any type of fare onto their Compass Card at any time, including DayPasses and Stored Value (money) instead of buying traditional fare media. The Compass Card website’s Help section has several helpful answers to FAQs for riders who aren’t sure how to get a hold of a card or how to load fares on one.

Currently there are about 250,000 active Compass Card users in Metro Vancouver, though TransLink expects that number to jump with the wider availability of the cards. Paper Monthly Passes will still be available for the time being, for those not quite ready to make the transition to the Card.

TransLink also released a video today to help customers become familiar with purchasing Compass Cards:
