Get up and go ... with GoPass
Effective July 1, 2014, GoPass will be offered to eligible faculty and staff for an annual fee of $25. For employees who currently have a GoPass, the change takes effect when the current GoPass expires in October. This charge is not automatic; participating employees must renew and pay $25 to remain with the program and receive a new GoPass for 2014-15. The GoPass remains free for all students.
A car-free commute at Duke is easier than ever with GoPass, which allows all students and eligible faculty and staff to have unlimited rides on DATA, Triangle Transit. The GoPass is free for students; eligible staff and faculty pay $25.
With the GoPass, Duke community members can hop on a variety of bus routes near campus and their home or office, swipe a GoPass on any eligible bus and save time and money while cutting carbon emissions. Learn more about the program guidelines here.

Duke is offering GoPass, a local and regional bus pass, to Duke staff and faculty whose offices are on the East, West, Central and Medical Center campuses; the American Tobacco Campus or within one-half mile of the East, West, Central or Medical campuses. All undergraduate, graduate and professional school students are eligible. Staff and faculty can check whether their offices fall within the eligibility area by reviewing this map.
Some Duke Affiliates are eligible for the GoPass for a $25 annual fee. Eligible affiliate classifications include visiting scholars, Emeriti faculty, temporary employees, and contract employees. Eligible affiliates will need to have a sponsoring department complete a sponsorship letter to submit to the Parking & Transportation Services office. Unfortunately, the GoPass is not available to spouses of Duke students, faculty and staff; students of other universities who are taking a Duke University class through another university's registrar system; nor volunteers. Bulk transit passes are available for purchase by non-GoPass eligible transit riders through Triangle Transit at http://www.triangletransit.org/pass-store.
