TriMet Fares

Tickets and passes valid on buses, MAX, WES and Streetcar

With your valid ticket or pass you can ride any combination of buses, MAX Light Rail, WES Commuter Rail and Portland Streetcar to complete your trip. Most TriMet fares can be used on C-TRAN as well. Note: If you're riding the Streetcar exclusively, you can buy a $1 Streetcar-only fare from Streetcar ticket machines.

Effective March 1, 2015, we're extending the transfer time on 2-Hour Tickets so they are valid for 2 ½ hours. This means you'll have more time to complete a trip or make transfers between buses and trains.
