TransLink integrates Interac Debit contactless payments into Tap to Pay

Wednesday 24 November 2021 10:27 CET | News

Canada-based transit company TransLink has tapped payment system company Interac to integrate its contactless payment solution into TransLink’s transit network.

Tap to Pay allows users to pay with Interac Debit directly, without pre-purchasing a Compass Card and without having to use an in-station Compass Vending Machine. By the end of 2022, TransLink customers will be able to pay with Interac Debit at Compass readers on any bus or fare gate across the system.

Once integrated, customers will be able to pay at Compass readers by using Interac Debit, in addition to other already available contactless payment options like Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay Wallet.

Over 5,000 Compass readers across TransLink’s expansive network will need to be upgraded to ensure compatibility with debit cards enabled with Interac Debit contactless payments.
