How to purchase fare at MAX and WES stations.

✔️ Ticket machines switching to Hop

Ticket machines at some MAX stations now dispense 2½-hour and 1-day Hop tickets.

Like traditional tickets, these are pre-validated (ready for immediate use) and available for Adult, Honored Citizen and Youth riders.

However, Hop tickets must be tapped on a Hop reader every time you board or transfer.

Hop tickets can’t be reloaded or recycled. If you’re a regular rider, consider getting a Hop card or paying with your phone in order to make the most of Hop’s convenience and benefits.

How to use ticket machines

  1. Select the fare you want by pressing one of the buttons below the video screen. The amount you need to pay will be displayed on the screen.
  2. Insert payment. Most machines accept debit/credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), coins (including $1 coins) and bills ($1, $5, $10 and $20). Machines labeled “Card Only” will only accept debit or credit cards. All WES ticket machines are card only.
  3. Collect your tickets and change from the tray at the bottom left.
