The day passed quickly

  • exceed
  • pronounce
  • approve
  • to excrete
  • to ignore
  • to happen
  • to go by
  • to transfer

To go by is the meaning here. And in the vast majority of cases, this is of course not referring to the literal length of the day, but how long it subjectively felt.

The phrase is equivalent to:

The day [felt like it] went by quickly.
