As a Wake Tech student or employee, you are eligible for a FREE regional GoPass! The GoPass allows you to ride any local or regional bus route for free. This includes all buses in GoTriangle, GoRaleigh, GoCary and GoDurham systems.
To be eligible, you must currently be enrolled in a seated Wake Tech class and have a current, valid Wake Tech ID. All full and part-time employees are eligible for GoPasses.
To get your GoPass, visit the ID/parking office:
- Southern Wake Campus: Building A (Holding Hall) - 102
- Northern Wake Campus: Building D - 103
- Perry Health Sciences Campus: Building A - 145
- Beltline Education Center
To use your GoPass:
- Visit gotriangle.org or Google Maps to plan your trip, which bus to ride, and when and where to board. You may also contact Wake Tech’s Transportation Coordinator for additional assistance.
- Tap your GoPass on the electronic fare box in the bus (next to the driver).
- Show the bus driver your Wake Tech ID when prompted.
GoPasses will be deactivated for students who lose their pass, do not comply with requirements, or are no longer enrolled.
Don’t lose your GoPass! The pass is good through January 31, 2022 and must be replaced in the ID/parking office.
The GoPass IS NOT transferable – it is valid only for the student to whom it was issued.
