How It Works

Using your GoPass ® Tap transit card will revolutionize the way you travel. When
GoPass ® Tap launches in 2018, it will be available for purchase in over 900 locations.

Tap to Board

Once you have your card, just touch your GoPass ® Tap card to the electronic reader every time you board or transfer on a bus or train. Your fare will be deducted automatically, so you’ll be ready to go.

Boarding Step - by - Step

  1. Simply “tap” your card on the card reader found at rail stations and on buses.
  2. The card reader will display a green checkmark and emit a beep that indicates you’ve successfully paid for the trip. The display will also show your card balance, and let you know if your account is running low.
