How does it work?
Passengers can book a trip on a rideshare vehicle using the free WeGo 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 in the City of Gainesville, but may be longer in other parts of Hall County. After booking trips, riders need to start walking to the virtual bus stop.
What is the normal wait time to be picked up by a WeGo driver?
Wait times will vary from 15 to 30 minutes depending on driver availability, but the WeGo app removes all the guess work as customers can now track the location of the vehicle in real time.
Peak hours are from 6-10 AM and 3-6 PM. During these times, if your trip is time sensitive, consider booking trips up to 1 hour in advance.
