    Do I need to have a registered card on compasscard.ca to enter the sweepstakes?

    No, you only need a valid Compass Card, registered or unregistered. A valid Compass Card is one that is not hot-listed (stolen or lost) or cancelled.

    Why do I need my Compass Card number and CVN to register?

    To earn extra entries the trips taken with your Compass Card number and CVN trips are tracked. It is not associated with your travel or personal details.

    What if I don’t have my Compass Card number or CVN?

    If you're using a Compass wristband for example, and don't have your CVN, please call Compass Customer service to get your number and/or CVN at 604.398.2042

    Why haven't I received the validation email?

    You get five attempts per calendar day. Please check to make sure you are using the correct email address and check your spam folder. Due to high registration numbers the validation email could be delayed. Please wait before trying to submit or you may exceed your registration attempts.

    Why do I need to confirm my registration with my email address?

    We need to ensure we meet all anti-spam regulations, that you’ve entered your email correctly and that we have a way to contact you if you are the winner.

    Why isn't the link in my confirmation email working?

    If you're seeing the "Oops, please try again..." error message, you may have registered multiple times, which means you should receive multiple confirmation emails. When confirming your account, please ensure you're using the most recent confirmation email and link.

    Do you track where I am travelling?

    No, your personal data is not connected to your travel history. We are not tracking where trips are taken or where the taps happens. We are only collecting taps to track complete trips/journeys. You can view privacy statement here.

    Earning entries using a Compass Card

    What is a trip/journey

    A trip or journey is when a user completes a transit trip using a valid Compass card, regardless of the number of transfers – earns an additional entry.

    Do I earn entries every time I tap my card?

    No, you earn an entry after you register, for each complete trip, regardless of the number of transfers until March 31, 2022.

    If you have a Compass Card or Compass Ticket, you can transfer across all modes of transit (bus, SeaBus, and SkyTrain) on a single fare for up to 90 minutes, or up to 120 minutes for West Coast Express services.

    Your travel time begins when you first tap your Compass Card, Compass Ticket, or contactless payment to enter a fare-paid zone.

    For more information visit the Transferring and AddFare page.

    When do my trips start earning entries?

    Each trip you take after you register will earn you an entry into the Sweepstakes. You must register for the Sweepstakes to start earning entries. Trips taken prior to registration into the Sweepstakes will not earn you entries.

    Do my trips enter me in to win all the prizes?

    After you register for the Sweepstakes, every month that you take trips and earn entries enters you into the monthly prize draw. For example, if you take three trips in November, you earn three entries into the November prize draw.
