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.
