As part of SCRAP-IT’s vehicle scrappage program, individuals who scrap their vehicles can now choose to receive a TransLink Stored Value Compass Card worth $50 monthly for 16 months.
“The new Stored Value Pass incentive provides yet another option for customers looking to trade in their vehicle for transit,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Quinn. "We’re pleased to be able to continue this important partnership, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Metro Vancouver.”
SCRAP-IT is a not-for-profit society focused on clean transportation alternatives. The vehicle scrappage program is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower exhaust pollutants across the province by offering multimodal rebates to those who scrap their vehicle, including transit, carshare, e-bike rebates, and more.
"SCRAP-IT is committed to reducing the environmental impact of vehicles on our communities," says SCRAP-IT CEO Diane Roberts. "We are excited to continue our partnership with TransLink and offer this new incentive to customers who make a positive impact on the environment."
Customers redeeming the Stored Value incentive reward can use their Compass Card on any TransLink service, including buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus, and West Coast Express. The new rebate option has been added to existing incentive options of the agency’s e8-Month 1-Zone Adult Monthly Pass, or a 14-Month 3-Zone Concession Pass.
