State Employee Commuter Options

Commuter Alternatives

Employees are encouraged to use programs available for commuting to work to reduce driving costs and reduce demand for parking.

GoPass Returns for Wake County Employees

The popular GoPass is returning as part of a pilot program associated with NCDOT'€™s Fortify project, which will completely rebuild 11.5 miles of I-40/440 in Raleigh. By making GoPass available to eligible state employees, NCDOT hopes to help take 30,000 vehicles off the interstates to improve traffic flow while construction is underway.

Full-time, permanent state government employees who work in Wake County can purchase a GoPass through the DOA Parking Office for $25 a year, starting in early December. The GoPass gives these employees access to all transit systems in the region for travel to and from their place of employment. The GoPass will be accepted for travel in January 2016.  Go Triangle
