Overview

Fare-free starting April 27

Update: Effective on Monday, April 27, GoGeo buses will be fare-free until May 29 to reduce cash and fare handling and minimize face-to-face interactions with other passengers and transit staff. Fare-free service will help social distancing by eliminating the need for customers to show their pass, pay the operator, or use the fare-box. It also speeds boarding and reduces crowding at vehicle entrances. The goal is to protect operators and customers from close physical proximity and to support customers using our essential service to perform essential duties. The fare-free period is not meant to encourage any additional ridership. Customers are reminded to use transit for essential trips only during the Stay Home Stay Safe period. All passengers are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings.
