It looks like some higher power in TransLink has decided to not go with the original smart card name choices – Compass, Otter, Umbrella, and George (in honor of Capt. Vancouver). The new choices are now Compass, TPass, and Starfish. So my one question is who was the brainchild that changed the choices?
Personally, I’m not all that impressed, but with the current final three, I would go for Starfish. TPass could be easily abused as T.P.Ass, which is an awful oversight on whoever picked that name as a finalist. Then Compass is just unoriginal. I think San Diego already uses that name.
If you want to vote for one of the three names, then visit TransLink for more info.
