Caltrain donates GoPasses to Palo Alto TMA!

Earlier this year, Caltrain introduced the Go Pass Donation pilot program where companies can donate unused Go Passes to distribute to qualifying community organizations. PATMA was recently selected as one of the organizations that will utilize the donated Go Passes to serve more essential workers providing up to $1,000 worth of free Caltrain passes! 


Phase 1 of the pilot program runs from now until December 31, 2021, with a limited number of passes to distribute. Caltrain will be expanding this program through 2022 and will seek additional donations of unused passes.


On behalf of Palo Alto’s essential workers, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Intuit for generously donating 700 Go Passes and to MTC for the generous donation of Clipper Cards. Kudos also to Caltrain’s Equity Analysis conclusion to prioritize the needs of riders/communities who depend on transit for essential travel. 


PATMA staff will work with our essential workers with regard to the program implementation. Please email us at or text us at (507) 339-4301‬ for questions.
