[Published Nov. 2017]

As we previously announced, the Go Pass will be transitioning to Clipper cards for Stanford commuters in 2018.

Requesting your Go Pass

  • To request a 2018 Go Pass, let us know the 10-digit serial number of your Clipper card by completing the 2018 Go Pass request form.
  • If you are Eco-Pass eligible, we encourage you to use the same Clipper card for both your Eco Pass and Go Pass.  If you need a VTA Eco Pass replacement, please submit your contact information on the 2018 Go Pass request form, and we will contact you for next steps.

If you have already requested your Go Pass and/or Eco Pass Clipper card, we will be following up with you in December. 

Deadline to receive passes before January

The P&TS office will be closed for the university’s winter closure Dec. 23, 2017, through Jan. 7, 2018. You must submit your Go Pass request by Friday, Dec. 15, 2017, in order to receive your 2018 Go Pass before Jan. 8, 2018.

P&TS and Hospital Parking & Access will be be hosting informational events on- and off-campus to help answer commuters’ questions about the Go Pass transition to Clipper. You can find more information about these events below.
