When can I pick up my Corporate Pass?

Your fare card will be shipped to your TravelWise Workplace Coordinator before the end of the month. You will need to set up an online account and load your Corporate Pass before you ride transit. 

Where do I pick up my Corporate Pass?

All Corporate Passes will be sent to Parking Services which is located in GSC 1112 beside Key Control. We are open Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Please bring a piece of photo ID to pick up your Corporate Pass. 

How do I renew my Corporate Pass?

Once you create an online easyGO fare card account, you can choose to autorenew your Corporate Pass each month. If you only need your Corporate Pass for certain months, log in and load the pass only when you need it.

Can I load tickets onto my card? 

You can also load Stored Value onto your card, which will deduct the "ticket price" when you tap on transit.

If you have a valid Corporate Pass and Stored Value on your card, the card reader will recognize your pass and not subtract from your Stored Value. 

What are the advantages of the Corporate Pass?

The GRT Corporate Pass will save you 15% on your monthly transit pass versus the regular adult rate provided by GRT. The current rate is $73.10.

Can I sign up for certain months only?

Yes - if you only need your Corporate Pass for certain months, you can log in prior to each month you need the pass.
