More Opportunities to Exchange Paper and Mobile Tickets for Hop Credit
It’s the final countdown.
In less than three months — on December 31, 2019 — we’re retiring our “legacy” fares: mobile tickets from the Tickets app and foil-stamped paper tickets and passes.
But even though we’ll be saying goodbye to the old paper and mobile tickets, you don’t have to lose the fare you’ve saved up. You’ve still got time to swap it in for Hop credit, and when you do, we’ll give you a Hop card — plastic or virtual — for free!
Not sure which is better for you? We can help. Our quiz will help you find your best way to pay: Hop card, virtual Hop, mobile wallet, contactless card or cash.
Still have “legacy” fares? We’re here to help.
