The pandemic has changed operations of GoDurham, GoTriangle and other regional carriers.  Currently they are providing free rides and will not accept GoPasses.  Please check back here frequently for updates if you are a GoPass customer.

A car-free commute at Duke is easier than ever with GoPass, which allows all students and eligible faculty and staff to take unlimited rides on GoDurhamGoTriangle, and GoRaleigh. With the GoPass, you can hop on a variety of eligible bus routes near campus and your home or office, swipe the GoPass, and save time and money while cutting carbon emissions.
