No change

Despite the rising costs of gas, utilities and supplies over the past decade, we have avoided increasing most fares since 2012. This proposed increase would help address inflation and the growing costs of operating our transit system.

If approved, the new fares would take effect January 1, 2024.

 

Reduced and free fare options

Honored Citizen Photo ID Hop card

We understand that a fare increase may be challenging for people struggling financially. TriMet currently offers a reduced fare for seniors, youth, people with disabilities and people living on a low income, who get unlimited rides for just $28/month. Visit our Reduced Fares webpage to see if you qualify.

We also give fares to community partners and nonprofits for little to no cost to distribute to community members in need.

Weigh in at an Open House

We invite feedback about the proposed fare increase at several in-person and virtual events. We also invite the community to provide feedback at our monthly Board of Directors Meetings.
