The objective of the Union Station Fast Pass Pilot Program is to reward drivers who transport passengers in WAVs, incentivize operators to increase the availability of WAV service, and provide additional income opportunities. Each month, DFHV will review WAV trip logs of drivers providing transportation service to Transport DC participants. The top performing drivers based on those logs will qualify for the Union Station Fast Pass. The pass will be valid for one month.
