  • GoPass is key to Metro’s ambition to build transit ridership to pre-pandemic levels
  • It is central to regional efforts to reduce automobile travel, traffic, and emissions
  • GoPass is an immediate and tangible benefit to struggling K-12/community college students
  • When you give a pass to a student, they ride!
  • Fare programs alleviate poverty, increase social mobility, and improve health
  • Metro’s GoPass program has been a phenomenal success. In November 2023, Metro’s GoPass pilot program saw a 28 percent increase in one year and just surpassed 35 million rides!
  • Metro’s GoPass Program a permanent program and include it in the Metro budget...forever. 


Move LA has been working for 15 years to create “insurance-like” transit discount programs – where all students pay a little, and all students get a pass - at transit agencies across California for students at K-12 institutions, community colleges, and our state’s universities. These programs have been proven to create a culture of ridership immediately, reduce VMT, and cut greenhouse gas emissions. But beyond that, the social welfare benefits bring value—from reducing absenteeism at K-12 schools to increasing graduation rates at community colleges to reducing poverty and homelessness, these programs are proven to work…and work quickly.

Hold Caltrans Accountable to California's Climate Goals

California Governor Gavin Newsom is leading on efforts to fight against climate change, yet the Governor's transportation agency -- Caltrans -- is undermining critical climate action goals.

Reporting in the Los Angeles Times has revealed that over the summer, a Caltrans executive and former policy director for CalBike Jeanie Ward-Waller, exposed that a $280-million repaving project along a stretch of Interstate 80 was surreptitiously widening 3½ miles of the freeway while "at the same time top state officials were pledging to end traffic-inducing freeway expansions to help meet ambitious climate goals."

This is why we joined 60 organizations calling on Governor Newsom to show Californians -- and the nation -- that health, the environment, and the fight against climate change are a top priority.
