Limited-edition cards mark 100th anniversary of Armistice; available at 25 SkyTrain stations

NEW WESTMINSTER, BC — This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. We are proud to release commemorative Compass Cards in honour of all Canadian veterans who have served our country.

Adult cards are available at 25 SkyTrain stations across the system. Look for the Remembrance Day symbol on vending machines or contact Customer Information (604-953-3333) to find out where cards are still available. Adult and concession cards are also available at the Compass Customer Service Centre at Stadium-Chinatown Station.

TransLink will make a 10-cent donation to the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Fund for each card purchased.

Veterans ride for free on all TransLink services on Sunday, November 11 by presenting their military ID or record of service card. One accessible fare gate will be left open at all SkyTrain, Canada Line and SeaBus stations. We will also encourage customers and staff to observe a moment of silence at or near 11 a.m. across all services.
