People already scalping TransLink’s Compass Wristbands online

“Only 1,000 blue adult wristbands and 1,000 orange concession wristbands were made available Monday, which is not a lot considering there are about 500,000 riders who use the system daily. The transit provider estimates it will take about two months to get more from the manufacturer in Germany. People ended up queuing up down the block when the wearable technology went on sale at 7:30 a.m., and it only took about three hours for TransLink to sell out.”
