GoPass365 is a boarding pass that is active for one year (July 1 – June 30), and can be used on every transit mode offered by Hampton Roads Transit (The Tide, light rail, bus, ferry, VB Wave, and the MAX) with a valid photo ID. Passes can only be obtained through participating employers, or participating colleges and universities.

Newport News Shipbuilding purchases a set number of HRT GoPass365 passes each year. For the 2018-19, NNS will distribute 1,500 passes to employees – a 250 increase from the previous year. Passes are distributed annually in July at no cost to the employee and if the number of requests exceeds the number of passes NNS has to distribute, a lottery system will be used to determine which employees will receive a pass. Employees who met NNS-provided GoPass365 requirements from the previous year will automatically receive another pass for the following year.

Employees who receive a pass must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Passes are for employee use only and are non-transferable.
  • Passes must be used at least 10 times per month. Utilization of NNS-provided passes will be monitored and underutilized passes are subject to being revoked.

Employees who receive HRT GoPass365 and meet requirements for that fiscal year will automatically be given a pass for the following year.
