Where to Buy Tickets and Passes

Hop Fastpass fare cards are available from local retailers, and they can be reloaded using the Hop website, app or phone hotline. Fare can also be purchased on board buses, from ticket vending machines and at the TriMet Customer Support Center.

Foil-stamped paper tickets and tickets purchased through the TriMet Tickets App are no longer accepted as valid fare.
