Earlier this morning, Translink's Compass Card Wristbands were released to the public for the first time.
Only 2,000 are available in the first package, with 1,000 baby blue-colored wristbands for riders with an adult fee and 1,000 orange-colored wristbands for riders with a concession charge.
The price? $ 6 off.
And in accordance with the tradition of Vancouverits standing in long lines for stuff, the lineups this morning are nothing short of crazy.
Now, some of these wristbands are looking at Craigslist for sale – at a premium price of course.
One ad has a wristbands listed for sale at $ 60.
"Very useful for frequent passenger riders," the ad reads. "Price includes delivery no." And hey, the wrist band Is In "new" condition after all.
But this is not your only option. You may be able to get a cheaper one out of another poster – asking for your "best offer."
"These are super limited and sold out everywhere, some people selling them for $ 100. I've been in line for those for 3 hours giving me your best offer," the ad reads.
If any of these options work for you, do not worry: Translink has covered you.
"We are ordering more stock which is expected to arrive in February," they tweeted.
Stickers are first spotted using the wristbands earlier this case as part of an extensive testing process.
The wristbands are highly durable for frequent use and can be reloaded, like the card.
