A new pilot program in Metro Vancouver will enable Compass smart card users to not only pay for TransLink’s public transit services, but also for car-share and bike-share programs.

The Shared Mobility Pilot Program will see select Vancouver-based employers provide their employees with co-branded Compass Cards for use on trips with any of the four transportation providers.

Approximately 200 employees from 14 organizations are set to take part and will be able to view expenses for each mode at the end of the month in one convenient location, through a streamlined expense report. The Shared Mobility Compass Card is for employees to use on work-related travel and is not open to the public at this stage.

TransLink’s partnership with Modo, Evo, and Mobi by Shaw Go was formed as part of the inaugural Open Call for Innovation on Seamless Mobility. The pilot program runs until the end of May 2020 and is important for testing the technical integration of the Compass system. All participating organizations and employees will be surveyed at the beginning and end of the program. The information collected will determine TransLink’s next steps, including the potential for wider integration.
