It’s easy to resolve a fare citation directly with TriMet, without going to court or having a court record. You have four options:
- Appeal: This is your best bet if you can prove you had valid fare.
- Pay a reduced fine: Your fine may be reduced if you pay within 90 days.
- Perform community service: In place of a fine, you can perform 4-15 hours of community service at organizations such as Oregon Food Bank or the Rebuilding Center.
- Enroll in a reduced fare program: If you're eligible and enroll, your citation may be dismissed.
