Create an account before purchasing tickets
You will need to create an account — either from within the app or on our website — before purchasing tickets, as it’s the only way you can transfer your unused tickets if you get a new phone. This will save you a lot of time the next time you ride, and it lets you manage unused tickets. Accounts that are unregistered will not be able to receive refunds or restore access to lost tickets.
Tap “Buy Tickets” from the menu to purchase tickets or passes
Choose your rider type
Choose Adult, Honored Citizen or Youth. Just make sure you’re able to provide proof of eligibility — like with the paper fares, this is required. Honored Citizens must be able to show proof of age (65+), a Medicare card or a TriMet Honored Citizen ID. Youth must show proof of age (7–17) or student status (high school or GED identification). Children age 6 and under ride free.
Choose your fare
You can buy a 2½-Hour Ticket, 1-Day Pass, 7-Day Pass, 14-Day Pass or 30-Day Pass. (1-Month Passes, which are valid for a calendar month, are not available through the app.) Tickets and passes can be stored for future use, so you don’t have to use them immediately.
Choose a quantity
You can buy multiple tickets to use later, either for yourself or for others in your group. A $5 minimum purchase is required.
Tap “Checkout” and pay with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. You’ll be asked to add a payment card the first time you purchase a fare, and you can store it for future use. You can add up to three cards to your account by tapping Add New Card in the Select Payment screen while using the app to make a purchase, or when making a purchase on our website.
