There are a couple things to note before you complete your claim:
The start month of your pass will depend on when you complete your claim. Before or after the 15th of each month. For example:
You applied on January 1, you have until February 1 to scrap your vehicle (30 days) and claim your rebate. If you complete the process quickly, and submit your TransLink claim between January 1 and January 15. Your monthly pass can start on February 1 or March 1 (but no later).
You applied on January 15, you have until February 15 to scrap your vehicle (30 days) and claim your rebate. If you submit your TransLink claim between January 15 and January 31. Your monthly pass can start on March 1 or April 1 (but no later). If you submit your TransLink claim between February 1 and February 15, your monthly pass can start on March 1 or April 1 (but no later).
Visit our Claim page and select TransLink Monthly Pass.
Complete the required fields.
SCRAP-IT will automatically load your monthly pass onto your card based on the date of your claim as noted above.
If we have any questions, we will contact you using the email address you provided in your application, please ensure it is accurate.
SCRAP-IT monthly passes are not refundable, or transferrable.
Monthly passes cannot be put on hold. No start/stops. Once the monthly pass starts, it continues consecutively until your allowed number of months have completed.
You cannot change your monthly pass type after your claim is complete. In other words, if you select an adult monthly pass and you have received (for example) 3 months of adult monthly passes, you cannot change that pass to a concession pass. The type of pass you select will be a final decision.

Once you have your new card, you will need to advise SCRAP-IT within 3 business days (of the date of loss), of the Serial Number off the new card.
