New: Virtual Hop Card for Android Devices
This new feature lets you pay with your phone while automatically earning day and month passes as you go. Plus the virtual card works for Honored Citizen and Youth fares, too.
And get this: the first 1,000 riders who download the app and add money to their virtual card will get a $3 credit from Google.
Update: The $3 credits have all been claimed. Thanks to everyone who has set up their virtual card!
Setting up the virtual card is easy. Just open the Hop Fastpass app on your Android phone, tap “Get Virtual Card Using Google Pay” on the home screen, and follow the instructions to sign in or create an account. Tap “Add Virtual Card” to add your Hop card to Google Pay, then select a card type and initial amount to load and buy your card. Tap “Save” and view your virtual card in Google Pay. You’re ready to go!
