TransLink’s on the hunt for a Vancouver-version of London’s “oyster,” Hong Kong’s “octopus,” or Seattle’s “orca:” names given to re-loadable fare cards.

The transportation company is hosting a contest to solicit name suggestions from the public for a new electronic re-loadable fare-card for the Lower Mainland, due out in 2013.

“The cards are going to revolutionize the transit system,” said Ken Hardie with TransLink.

“So we obviously want to get a name that people will remember.”

In addition to choosing the card’s name, the winner will also receive an iPad, as well as a year’s worth of free transit when the cards are released publicly.
