Imagine getting onto a train each morning only to be greeted by the legendary Morgan Freeman!
Morgan Freeman has a huge deal with Visa, and in support of TransLink’s rollout of credit card and mobile payments on board its buses and at SkyTrain stations, transit riders will hear Freeman’s distinctive voice making announcements at select SkyTrain stations and on some routes for a brief time this summer.
Morgan will be heard making standard announcements notifying transit riders about TransLink’s new tap-to-pay feature and will also be mentioning bus etiquette.
“Hello, bus riders. This is a smoke-free bus, but I’m sure you already knew that,” says one track. “What you might not know, however, is that you can now tap your Visa to go anywhere TransLink takes you. Have a great day.”
