The GO TAP (Group Organization) Program allows groups and organizations to offer managed TAP cards to their members. The cards may be used for payment of fares on all TAP-participating transit agencies. Groups of any size may participate, including government agencies, school districts and public and private companies.

Payment in full is required at the time of each order. The following payment methods are accepted:

- What is the difference between a calendar pass and a rolling pass?
- Calendar passes are valid from the 1st day of the month through the last day of the month and must be activated by the 24th of the month. Rolling passes are valid for a specific number of days from the first time “tapped” (i.e. 7, 30, or 31) and can be activated at any time. EZ transit passes are calendar-based and must be active prior to the 15th of the month to be active for the current month.
An asterisk (*) on the website product menu indicates a calendar-based pass. Otherwise, the product is a rolling pass.
