Where will my corporate pass be shipped?

Fare cards are mailed directly to your billing address. If you require your card sent to a different address, please contact grtfares@regionofwaterloo.ca after you have completed the online form.

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 compared to GRT's regular monthly pass. The current rate can be found at www.grt.ca/fares

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.
