WeGo is a rideshare transportation service provided by the City of Gainesville that uses a smartphone application and a fleet of 22 passenger vans to transport you around town. It’s easy, quick, safe and affordable.
Passengers can book a trip on a rideshare vehicle using the free WeGo Powered by Via app. Customers must simply enter their pick-up and drop-off locations, and a vehicle will pick them up within a block or two of their doorstep. Those who don’t have a smartphone to download the app can book a ride by calling 770-503-3333, ext. 1. Wait time is typically 15 minutes or less. After booking trips, riders need to start walking to the virtual bus stop, hence "Click - Walk - Ride".
WeGo services are available from 5 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday. Service hours and days may increase in the future. WeGo services are unavailable on all City-observed holidays, including those reserved for New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
WeGo operates throughout Gainesville-Hall County.
Customers are able to view estimated wait times when they enter their pick-up and drop-off locations in the WeGo Powered by Via app. Wait times will vary depending on nearby driver availability, but generally should not exceed 15 minutes in the City of Gainesville and 45 minutes in other parts of Hall County.
Depending on your location, the van will pick you up directly from your location, or you may be asked to walk 2-3 minutes to the closest safe intersection or business.
Customers can pay by credit or debit cards, or a prepaid card, registered when they set up an account. Individuals may also purchase a voucher for a designated amount and use it to access the WeGo service.
In the daytime, trips 5 miles or less in distance cost $2, plus 50 cents for each additional mile. After 6:30 p.m., the base evening fare increases to $4 for the first 5 miles, plus plus 50 cents for each additional mile.
