TransLink is partnering with SCRAP-IT to offer a compass card rebate when residents in the Vancouver, British Columbia, area can no longer drive their cars and instead use the transit system.
Customers can choose either an eight-month adult 1-Zone or 14-month concession compass card valued at CA$802, TransLink officials said in a news release.
For more than 25 years, the SCRAP-IT program has offered green transportation incentives to encourage drivers to give up their cars and trucks for electronic vehicle subsidies, carshare credits, transit passes, e-bikes and cash rebates.
"We are facing a climate emergency and we must all take steps to reduce our carbon emissions," said TransLink Chief Executive Officer Kevin Quinn. "Partnerships like this help people make greener, more environmentally friendly choices. By choosing public transportation you are helping reduce congestion and the region’s carbon footprint."
