About Downtown CPass

Beginning June 1, 2018,  your downtown company can offer unlimited COTA access to your employees thanks to the generous support of Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District, MORPC, and corporate partners. There’s no cost to you or your associates. 

Enrollment begins May 1 and passes are active June 1. It’s easy to enroll through a secure member portal. We’ll provide materials to help you promote the CPass to your employees, including “how to” videos, and even come present to your employees about the program and Downtown commuting options.
