  • Auto Buy* - Eliminates the need to track the cash value or days remaining on a SunGO Card or SunGO ID & Card.  Registered cardholders can set up an account to automatically add value/pass through a secure funds transfer from a select credit or debit card on a regular basis.  Auto Buy adds a predetermined cash value when the value on a card is depleted, or a new pass is added once the existing product is about to expire.
