Sponsorship Program Application

Our Community Sponsorship program is a great way for you to provide TriMet fares for your event’s attendees, provided it is open to the public and accessible by transit. If your application is accepted, we will send you fares to cover 10% of your event’s expected attendees, up to a maximum of 500 fares. (For example, if your event’s attendance history suggests a crowd of 2,500 people, you will be eligible to receive 250 fares.)

Due to the popularity of Community Sponsorships, we are only able to award 30 organizations with this opportunity each year. Applications are available starting in September for events taking place the following calendar year, and we’ll notify you with the result of your application by November. To ensure we distribute sponsorship fairly, you are welcome to apply every other year.
