No. The pass will be $9.75 in total. No surcharge.

From Translink's site about YVR add fare.

"Exemptions

Customers who use prepaid fares such as DayPasses, Monthly FareCards, FareSaver tickets, West Coast Express weekly and 28-day passes, U-Passes, Employer Passes and Government Bus Passes are exempt from the Canada Line YVR AddFare. If you are at the airport, DayPasses can be purchased at the 7-Eleven or the Pharmasave on Level 1, Arrivals. DayPasses and FareSavers don't have specific dates for travel, so they can be purchased in bulk for future travel dates."

Thank you! So I can assume that the following has not take effect yet.:

"On Feb. 19, 2014, the Regional Transportation Commissioner approved TransLink's request to apply the YVR AddFare to the Compass Card on some fares. The change will apply to fares purchased with Compass Card Stored Value for travel to Bridgeport Station and beyond and to DayPasses sold on Sea Island in Richmond. The YVR AddFare rate remains at $5. The change will be programmed into the new Compass equipment and will take effect as customers transition to Compass later in 2014."

Yes, you are correct. The new COMPASS cards haven't come into effect yet, although they have started issuing them to certain groups. If you are coming in the next couple of months, you are probably going to be fine with the current day pass.

This link has all the info.
