Monday 29 November 2021 13:11 CET | News

Metro Vancouver’s public transportation system, TransLink has announced it will integrate Canada-based interbank method Interac Debit to offer customers more contactless payment options.

By the end of 2022, clients using TransLink will be able to pay using the Interac Debit at any readers, bus or fare gate across the Canadian transportation system. As a result, TransLink will become the first Canadian transit agency to fully integrate Interac’s Debit contactless payments system.

The tap to pay technology offers riders and tourists a convenient and easy way to pay for their public transportation tickets, without having to use prepaid Compass Cards or an in-station Compass Vending machine. 

Once integrated, the new payment method will be available apart from the already existing contactless methods like Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay Wallet.
