Access Transit Low-Income Fare Programs

We recognize access to public transit is access to opportunity, so we've established Access Transit fare programs. The programs help low-income individuals access transit and offset fare increases.

We set aside a total of $1.5 million for these programs to mitigate impacts of fare increases on low-income riders. Through these programs, we provide fares to non-profits and community-based organizations at a lower cost or at no cost, which they then distribute to their low-income clients.

Transit Assistance Program

Introducing TriMet’s reduced fare for low-income riders

Get help with your transportation costs. You may be able to ride TriMet for less. Riders with qualifying annual incomes may be be eligible for half-price Honored Citizen fares.

Fare Assistance Program

Previously the Low-Income Mitigation Program

The Fare Assistance Program provides fares to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations at a reduced cost.

Fare Relief Program

Grants of up to $30,000 in the form of fares are available to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit and community-based organizations. These grants are not to replace existing resources used to purchase fares through the program, rather, this program will increase the assistance an organization can provide to low-income recipients.
