Honored Citizen Tickets and Passes
“Honored Citizen” is how we identify seniors age 65 or older, people on Medicare and people with mental or physical disabilities. Honored Citizen riders receive reduced fares and priority seating on buses and trains.
Reduced fares. As an Honored Citizen, you pay half the price of an Adult 2½-Hour Ticket and less than one-third the price of an Adult 1-Month Pass — just select “Honored Citizen” when purchasing your fare.
Priority seating. The seats nearest the door are reserved for you.
Personal attendant rides free. If you qualify, a personal attendant may accompany you at no charge.
Seniors 65 and older
If you are age 65 or older, you are eligible to use Honored Citizen fares. Proof of age is required when boarding — be prepared to show either your government-issued photo ID (with proof of age) or your TriMet Honored Citizen ID Card.
If you are a Medicare member, you are eligible to use Honored Citizen fares. You may show your Medicare card and your government-issued photo ID as proof of eligibility, but be sure to protect your card to avoid identity theft and Medicare fraud. Better yet, get an Honored Citizen ID Card to use instead.
People with disabilities
If you have a mental or physical disability, you’ll need a TriMet Honored Citizen Card in order to use Honored Citizen fares. Be prepared to show this card when boarding.
Honored Citizen tickets and transfers are accepted on TriMet’s LIFT Paratransit service with an additional cash payment. Honored Citizen Monthly Passes are not accepted on LIFT.
How does the Honored Citizen fare work with Hop Fastpass?
Honored Citizens can purchase an Honored Citizen Hop Card, an electronic fare card you’ll tap every time you board a bus or train. Like today, ID is required to use Honored Citizen Hop fare.
Note: Only full Adult fares are available for riders tapping bank cards or mobile wallets at Hop readers.
