What is the Community Pass?
The Community Pass was launched in June 2018 by Mobi by Shaw Go in partnership with the City of Vancouver. This pass reduces barriers to bike share by providing discounted memberships, cash payment options, reduced liability, and one-on-one support to those who live, work, and play around Vancouver.
Who can sign up for the Community Pass?
You may qualify for the Community Pass if you have a:
  • Leisure Access Pass
  • Red Compass Card
  • Greater Vancouver Food Bank Membership Card
  • Third party referral from a Community Partner
If your organization is interested in partnering with Mobi by Shaw Go to offer this membership to your clients, please contact us at
I don't have a current Leisure Access Pass or red Compass Card. Can I still sign up?
