Fares from ticket machines at MAX and WES stations are valid on buses, MAX Light Rail, WES Commuter Rail and Portland Streetcar.
Ticket machines are switching to Hop
Starting mid-2018, ticket machines at MAX and WES stations will dispense 2½-hour and 1-day Hop tickets.
These are similar to traditional tickets: They are pre-validated (ready for immediate use), they’re available for Adult, Honored Citizen and Youth riders, and their prices haven’t changed.
The only difference is that Hop tickets must be tapped on a Hop reader every time you board or transfer.
How to use ticket machines
- 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.
- 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.
- Collect your tickets and change from the tray at the bottom left.
