OneCard Vancouver: How to Load a 10-Visit Pass for a Child to Your OneCard

image

Want to buy a 10 visit pass for you and your child for Kits Pool? Here’s how. An adult 10 visit pass and a child 10 visit pass cannot be loaded onto the same OneCard as they are age-based packages. You require two separate cards BUT still use the same online account to purchase the passes. You can get a OneCard for your child at any of the community centres or swimming pools. Then online you can set up your child on your account by adding a new family member. Next, when you purchase a child 10 visit pass online and select your child’s name, those tickets are auto-magically loaded on to their OneCard and you are only charged the child rate. When you go to one of the community facilities, you need to scan both cards.

Here’s how to add a 10-visit pass to your OneCard, and how to get a child pass.

First, have two OneCards (one for you and one for your child). Create your online account and add your child as a family member.

To add and buy the 10-visit pass (adult)

  1. Sign-in to your account
  2. Select Passes in the grey menu.
  3. From the list of current memberships, click the one you want to renew or add
  4. Click “Add to Cart”
  5. Select Checkout.
  6. Select Continue.
  7. Confirm your order and select Continue. At some point you will be asked to assign the pass to a person on the account. Select your name and Continue.
  8. Enter your payment information and select Continue.

Those instructions are here:
