Now Available: Reduced Fares for Low-Income Riders

Jul 10, 2018

If you have trouble affording your TriMet fare, relief may be available.

Oregon residents who are 18 to 64 years old and have an income less than twice the federal poverty level can apply to ride for a lower fare. If approved, you will save 50% off a single ride or day pass, or 72% off a month pass.

Application is a three-step process. You’ll need to…

  1. Show that your income qualifies
  2. Apply in-person at one of our community partner locations
  3. Pick up your personalized Hop card from the TriMet Ticket Office at Pioneer Square

We’ll walk you through each step. Find out if you’re eligible and apply today.
