No major issues on SkyTain or Seabus platforms Monday morning on the first day of TransLink closing all its fare gates.
But not all are happy with the Compass Card system.
Shin Katani says the Compass Card is a good idea, but he says execution could of been better.
“The amount of money spent on this, on what seems to be a simple card roll out, I don’t know where that money went and that’s pretty concerning.”
James Kroytko says he’s been using public transit his whole life.
He’s not a fan.
“It’s kind of a hassle sometimes when you’re getting on and off to remember to tap in and out and the lineups to get on to transit in the morning are a hassle because you have to wait to tap.”
The rollout was three years behind schedule at a cost of $194 million.
