Rosa Parks Day

Rosa Parks Day

Updated: 1:08am, Sat. Feb. 4, 2023

To celebrate and honor the iconic Rosa Parks and her contributions to the civil rights movement, we will not collect fares on buses, MAX, WES and LIFT today -- Rosa Parks' birthday. Portland Streetcar and C-TRAN will also join us in not collecting fares on February 4, 2023. If you're riding today, you won't have to tap your Hop card or buy a ticket at the station -- just come on aboard. Transfers are free, too. More

Ride Safe

The COVID-19 pandemic drove home the importance of healthy spaces. While we no longer require masks on transit, there are a few things we all can do to make sure everyone riding transit stays healthy.

As of April 19, 2022, masks are now optional on our buses and trains due to a change in federal law, but the CDC does recommend continuing to mask up on transit. We know our riders have mixed feelings about the mandate ending. Some people may continue to wear a mask for added safety, while others may choose not to. We ask everyone to be respectful of others’ masking choices.

What we do

  • We provide free face masks on all our vehicles and hand sanitizer on all buses and most trains.
  • Our buses and trains have good ventilation.

What you can do

  • Practice good hygiene and frequently clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer is provided on many of our vehicles.
  • Not feeling well? Stay home. Or wear a mask if you have to ride. Masks are available for free on board all our vehicles.
  • Touchless payments like Hop and contactless credit cards mean less opportunities for germs to spread. Get started with Hop.
  • Get vaccinated.

We’re here for you!

If you have a question, concern or suggestion, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
