With Hop, instead of buying passes in advance you earn them as you go. All you have to do is ride!
Every time you pay your fare, your tap goes toward a Day Pass or Month Pass. After paying for two trips in a day, you’ll automatically earn a Day Pass and the rest of your rides are free until 3 a.m.
With a Hop card or virtual Hop card, once you’ve paid the equivalent of a Month Pass in a calendar month — typically $100 for TriMet Adult riders or $28 for Youth and Honored Citizens — the rest of your rides are free until the next month.
That means you’ll never pay more than the price of a Day Pass in one day, or the price of a Month Pass in one month. And you only pay for the rides you actually take. So everyone gets the savings of a pass, without the upfront cost or commitment.
