How it works

Single-use

Hop tickets are single-use paper tickets with electronics inside. You can buy 2½-Hour and 1-Day tickets for Adult, Honored Citizen or Youth riders. MAX ticket machines accept credit/debit cards or cash. WES ticket machines accept cards only.

Tap to board

Tap your ticket on the Hop reader before you board to validate your fare. The screen will show a confirmation that you paid your fare and you will hear an audible chime. You’re good to go!

Tap every time

Your fare is valid for either 2½ hours or 1 day (until 3 a.m.), during which time you can board any combination of buses, MAX trains or Portland Streetcar to complete your trip. Remember to tap the Hop reader every time you board. Your tap is your proof of payment.
