How to use it

On the bus

If your pass is already validated (time-stamped), just show it to the operator and have a seat. Do not place validated tickets or passes in the farebox. If your pass has not yet been validated, tell your operator that you have a Day Pass and insert it into the farebox. The operator will give you another ticket/receipt valid for the rest of the service day. Keep this ticket as proof of payment.

On MAX

First, stamp your pass in one of the validators at the MAX station, if it’s not already validated. The pass is then valid for the rest of the service day. (1-Day Passes purchased from ticket machines come pre-validated at the time of purchase.) Board MAX and make sure you keep your pass with you in case a fare inspector asks to see proof of payment.

On WES

First, stamp your pass in one of the validators at the MAX station, if it’s not already validated. The pass is then valid for the rest of the service day. (1-Day Passes purchased from ticket machines come pre-validated at the time of purchase.) Board WES and have a seat. Be prepared to show the conductor your fare. He/she may check your fare as you board, or after the train leaves the station.

On the Portland Streetcar

Board the Streetcar and stamp your pass in the validator on board, if it’s not already validated. Keep your pass with you in case a fare inspector asks to see proof of payment.
