GoPass program details:


The GoPass program allows registered employers/colleges and their employees/students the opportunity to ride GoRaleigh buses for free. Once the participating employer/college has enrolled in the program, they receive GoPass swipe cards. The pass is swiped at the fare box in lieu of a regular bus fare. A GoPass can only be used by the employee/student of the sponsoring agency.

North Carolina State University, Meredith College, the City of Raleigh, and Wake County government are currently enrolled in the program.

GoRaleigh provides bus service throughout Raleigh.
