Youth GoPass Program and Registration Information

Beginning August 6, 2018, GoCary, GoRaleigh and GoTriangle will launch the Youth GoPass Program, which allows youth ages 13-18 to ride free. Our goal is to help young folks get to school, jobs, parks, movies, museums, and anywhere else they need to go while building a new generation of transit users.

Riders ages 12 and younger continue to ride free with a parent or guardian and do not need a Youth GoPass. Applications for the Youth GoPass may be completed and turned in at the Town’s Transportation & Facilities Department (2nd floor of Cary Town Hall), 316 N. Academy Street, Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find more information at
