As of Monday, faregates and card readers are being installed on the Millennium Line starting with Lougheed Town Centre Station. Construction has been underway at Expo and Canada Line stations since late last summer.

Watch for signs and TransLink staff will be on hand to help direct customers through the construction site.

The equipment will enable the use of TransLink's new Compass card, which will  allow for more efficient fare payment and provide TransLink planners with hard data on passenger movements so resources can be allocated as efficiently as possible. The information will also pave the way for a restructuring of the fare zone system, to bring it more into line with the realities of today.
