Transportation GoPass Program

North Carolina Central University is pleased to offer the NCCU GoPass – a free public transportation bus pass – to students. The GoPass allows students to take transit to and from the NCCU campus on any route, with any agency in the GoTransit family of services. Initial distributions will take place during the first week of classes. GoPass cards will be distributed after Aug. 20, on a first-come, first-serve basis through the Department of Transportation located in the McDougald House, lower level. NCCU ID is required. The GoPass agreement can be found here.
