You can buy a Monthly Pass (FareCards) for one, two or three zone travel by bus, SeaBus, and SkyTrain services. Tickets for West Coast Express must be purchased separately as they are priced differently.
Buying a Monthly Pass
Monthly Passes (FareCards) are valid only for the month shown, are transferable, and are sold at FareDealer locations as early as the 20th of the preceding month as well as the first few days of the applicable month. Availability and form of accepted payment varies by location.
FareCards can be purchased after the above stated period from either the Lottery Ticket Centre at the Pacific Centre Mall (700 W. Georgia, 604.689.1422) or at the TransLink FareDealer office in the lobby of Metrotower I (604.453.4490). Always call in advance to verify availability.
FareCards are not pro-rated for purchase at any point during the month.
Concession fares apply to children 5 to 13 years old, secondary students ages 14 to 19 with a valid GoCard, seniors 65+ with proof of age and HandyCard holders. These people can travel at a reduced price.
Children 4 years and younger ride for free when accompanied by an adult. CNIB and War Amputee pass holders also ride for free.
Monthly Passes (FareCards) provide unlimited travel within the selected zone(s) on weekdays and across all zones on weekends, statutory holidays, and after 6:30 p.m. on weekday evenings.
*Savings based on the cost of 20 adult single fare return trips
**Concession FareCard is valid in all zones, all day
If you have bought a one-zone fare but need to travel through two or three zones, you can upgrade your ticket or Monthly Pass on the bus or at SkyTrain or SeaBus ticket vending machines with a proof of payment transfer.
