Bus Anywhere with a One-Zone Fare Starts October 5

September 30, 2015

New Westminster, BC – TransLink reminds customers that Bus Anywhere with a One-Zone Fare starts Monday, October 5. Customers will only need to pay for one-zone travel on buses and HandyDART all day, every day, throughout Metro Vancouver.

The existing fare-zone rates for SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express remain in effect.

Also starting October 5, tapping with a Compass Card will become easier. Customers with Compass Cards or Tickets will tap in but will no longer have to tap out when exiting the bus. Tap in and tap out is still required on all other modes. SkyTrain customers will see select gates closed at stations as a reminder to tap in and tap out.

“As we roll out Compass in phases, we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to support our customers along the way,” said Cathy McLay, TransLink’s Acting CEO. “Introducing the one-zone fare for bus travel and removing the need to tap out on buses will make this transition easier for our customers.”

“Our outreach teams have also already engaged more than 50,000 people across the system to help guide customers to buy the right zone and to successfully plan their journey.”

A video of 5 tips for Bus Anywhere with a 1-Zone Fare is available on TransLink’s YouTube channel.
