Access Transit Fare Programs
Resources for organizations and low-income riders.
Access to public transportation is access to opportunity. Riders with qualifying incomes, along with organizations that distribute fare to low-income clients, can take advantage of the following programs to get their transit fare at a lower cost or at no cost.
Introducing TriMet’s reduced fare for low-income riders
If you need help with your transportation costs, you may be able to ride the bus or train for less. Riders with qualifying annual incomes may be be eligible for Honored Citizen fares, which are half the price of Adult fares.
Previously the Low-Income Mitigation Program
The Fare Assistance Program provides fares to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations at a reduced cost.
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.
