I pass you my mother I'll get my mother on the phone
I´ll pass you over
I´ll pass it to you(I'll pass the call to you)

CORRECTIONS?
En algunas circunstancias un recepcionista puede usar pass.
Ejemplo. "Good morning this is Joe. May I speak with Maria please. It's urgent."
"Ok. I'll pass you through to Maria right away" , pero es más común oir,
"Ok. I'll put you through right away."
PD. She can't get to the phone right now. Please call later.
