The SamTrans Way2Go program allows residential complexes and companies (“participants”) to purchase annual unlimited-ride passes for all eligible employees or residents. A Way2Go pass is a product on the regional Clipper card. The resident/employee will simply tag it against the reader on the bus as proof of payment. The Way2Go Pass is good for travel on all SamTrans regular service for one low annual cost per resident/employee. The Way2Go Pass is valid through the last day of the calendar year. The Way2Go Pass is not available for purchase by individuals and it cannot be used on other transit systems.
The Way2Go program is open to participants of any size. Participants pay an annual fee for every eligible employee or resident regardless of who will use the program. Eligible residents include all residents five years and older and eligible employees include all employees working more than 20 hours per week excluding contractors, consultants, interns and temporary employees.
The total cost of participating in the Way2Go program is the greater of $125 per eligible employee/resident or $12,500. To determine the cost, multiply the number of eligible employees/residents by $125. If the total is less than $12,500, the participation cost is $12,500. If the total exceeds $12,500, the cost is $125 per eligible employee/resident. The cost is pro-rated if the participant joins the program for less than a full year.
To participate in the Way2Go program, participants sign a written agreement (2021) with SamTrans and are responsible for issuing, tracking and distributing the Way2Go passes. Employees/residents are required to fill out an online survey prior to receiving the Way2Go Pass.
