WeGo is a new rideshare transportation service that uses a smartphone application and a fleet of 10-12 passenger vans to transport you around town. This service launched in December 2020.
Passengers can book a trip on a rideshare vehicle using the free WeGo Powered by Via app. Customers enter their pick-up and drop-off locations and a vehicle will pick them up within a block or two of their doorstep or a nearby location. Those who don’t have a smartphone to download the app can book a ride by phone, call 770-503-3333, Option 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 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday. Service hours and days may increase in the future. WeGo will provide riders advance notice on any holiday-related schedule changes.
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 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 card, debit card or a prepaid card, which is 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.
Trips 5 miles or less in distance cost $2, plus 50 cents for each additional mile.
WeGo has a live support line. To schedule a ride by phone, call 770-503-3333, Option 1. You can call that number to book a ride if you have already set up a WeGo account. If you do not have an account, you can call that number to speak with a WeGo representative to set up an account.
