Employer Passes

Give your employees the gift of car-free travel in the beautiful Columbia Gorge—including visits to Multnomah Falls, strolling through downtown Hood River, skiing, wine tasting, bike rides, and gorgeous hikes year round. Gorge employees can also use the Pass to commute, which may qualify for tax credits.

The Pass also brings health, with access to trails and outdoor experiences without the hassle of parking, permits, or congestion. The perfect add-on to a gym membership.


Help protect the natural beauty of the Columbia Gorge (Portland’s Backyard) and add to environmentally sustainable efforts by taking cars off the road.


For each GOrge Pass you buy for your staff, we will donate one to the Gorge Equity Fund through our Buy One, Give One program. 

  • OUTDOOR EQUITY ORGS:  The fund gives passes to organizations like Wild Diversity and CultureSeed who are dedicated to making the outdoors more welcoming to those who have traditionally been excluded.

  • LOW-INCOME PROGRAMS:Not everyone has or needs a car, but all should have access to transit and the outdoors (as well as to medical services, education, work and social activities). This fund puts passes in the right hands through programs like Gorge Transit Connect.

  • SEARCH & RESCUE: The fund donates money to the organizations such as Crag Rats who keep people safe while recreating in the Gorge. Although these organization serve the entire region, their funding rests on the shoulders of a few local sources in need of support.

A few details: The Equity Fund is a 501c3 so direct donations are tax deductible. Due to the time it takes to set up each order, sales of a minimum of 10 passes are needed before an employer qualifies for the Buy One, Give One program. Physical passes cost $3 extra per pass to print and send. Give One donations currently apply to the first 4000 sales. 

The more GOrge Passes purchased, the more routes we’ll be able to add – which mean more equitable access to all. Imagine the future where you can easily hop on and off at ANY hiking trail and pub in the Gorge without parking hassles or congestion. Your purchase of the GOrge Pass helps us get there.
