GoPass is a free transit pass offered to employees and tenants by the employer, property manager or developer.  Tenants and employees ride for FREE for one year on all transit routes in the Triangle with any agency, when commuting to and from work.  It’s a win-win benefit to offer as you are only billed for actual boardings at a fraction of the published transit fare.  GoPass is available for and best suited to those considering over 100 employees for the offering. 

See below for a list of employers who offer exclusive subsidies and discounts on smart commuting options.

Why offer one?  

Providing a GoPass is beneficial for tenants and employees, most certainly.  But there are many other benefits to you as a developer or property manager who offers a GoPass as well, including:

  • Attract and retain tenants and  employees in the city center with  ample access to the workplace without the concern of parking.
  • Get individuals out of the habit of commuting to and from work via single occupancy vehicles (SOV). 
  • Help reduce congestion and parking demand, while creating available space for customers, retail, and employer growth. 
  • Create a less stressful commute to work while saving gas, money, emissions,  and improving air quality, also attracting individuals to this great region in which to live, work and play.

Who offers GoPass?  

Various organizations throughout the Triangle have already taken advantage of the benefits of the GoPass, including universities and colleges, State and local governments, property management firms and large employers. The list below contains a current list of GoPass partners, or talk to your outreach coordinator to see if GoPass is a fit for you.
