The features include:

  • Mobile ticketing which allows you to purchase passes and store them for up to 60 days.
  • Pay by credit card, Apple Pay, or use the cash-to-mobile option where you can load cash to your GoPass Wallet at retail locations.
  • Real-time trip planning with step-by-step navigation, and ability to to save your favorite routes, stops and pass types.

In September 2018 GoPass also introduced Mobile Fare Capping, where users have their monthly costs capped, so even if you purchase multiple daily passes you will never pay more than than the equivalent 31-day pass. Simple and convenient.

Mobility On-demand

As part of the FTA sponsored Mobility On-demand project Unwire has worked, together with DART, to extend the multimodal trip planner with integrations to car pooling, micro transit on-demand services, bike and car sharing services. Also, to provide users with the capability to pay for 3rd party transport services using funds in the GoPass Wallet using the Wallet API.

GoLink service

Micro-transit on-demand services (“GoLink”) have been seamlessly integrated into the GoPass journey planner to offer first mile and last mile options for regions extending beyond Dart’s network of fixed routes. Users can get trip estimates, book, pay and execute the full ride without leaving the GoPass app. Uber is also integrated to the journey planner offering ride estimates and prices. Bird electric scooters are shown as icons on the travel tools map and where the user can deep link out to the Bird app to book a ride. More 3rd party service providers and capabilities will be deeply integrated into the multimodal trip planner in the future so both trip execution and payment can be handled without leaving the GoPass app.
