PART's TouchPass Mobile and Smartcard Ticketing system uses electronic fare collection to replace the old days of paper magstripe passes. Passengers no longer have to wait in line at the ticket window to buy a pass but can purchase their pass over the internet using the secure TouchPass system. Simply download the TouchPass Mobile App or buy a TouchPass Smartcard to purchase passes conveniently, pay fares easily, and speed up the boarding process!
The TouchPass Smartcard is $5 and those who fully register their TouchPass Mobile App or Smartcard will receive one FREE one-way ride loaded! Give us a call at the Call Center 336-883-7278 once you have registered your card and we will load the ticket.
The TouchPass system allows you to set up a personal TouchPass account where you can purchase and track your passes or load stored value, and monitor your account activity. It also eliminates the fear of losing your pass. If you’re a Smartcard user and you lose your card, as long as you’ve created a user account and tied your Smartcard to your account, we’ll be able to transfer your funds from one card to another. So make sure to register!
TouchPass lets you purchase your PART Express bus pass online or on your mobile device. No more coins or bills. No more asking for transfer slips. TouchPass keeps track of your transfers and will even provide a countdown clock to let you know when your transfers or passes are about to expire if you use your mobile device.

Passengers cannot use both the TouchPass Mobile App and Smartcard at the same time. You will be required to choose the option that works best for you.
