How to pay using Hop

Tap your Hop card or phone on the reader every time you board a bus or enter a train station, including when you transfer. For Adult fare, you can simply tap your phone using Android Pay, Apple Pay or Samsung Pay — no Hop card required.

The reader will show a green checkmark and you’ll hear a sound confirming that your fare is valid. You’re good to go!

With Hop, you automatically get the savings of day passes (when using a Hop card or your phone) and month passes (when using a Hop card).
