TransLink is inching closer to closing all of its fare gates.
Fare gates were closed throughout much of yesterday at Edmonds SkyTrain, and today, staff were at Sperling – Burnaby Lake to guide transit users through a dress rehearsal of having all the fare gates closed.
TransLink spokesperson Jennifer Morland says it was a good test for both commuters and staff.
“It gave us an opportunity to see how many people continue to travel with FareSavers. There’s still people out there that are travelling with FareSavers, so by having this full gate closure test yesterday, we were able to encourage customers to make the switch to Compass.”
Still no estimate on when TransLink will close the gates for good.
