Starting in 2017, Hop Fastpass™ will be your ticket to ride TriMet, C-TRAN and Portland Streetcar.
More than a Smartcard.
Hop Fastpass is a new transit fare card that will make it faster and easier to ride the bus or train. Simply "tap on" every time you ride. Add funds to your account anywhere, anytime. And save money with pay-as-you-go passes.
How It Works:
Tap and Go
Simply touch your card to the reader every time you board or transfer, and you’re on your way! There will be readers at every MAX/WES/Vine* station, and on board every bus and streetcar.
Now everyone can get the savings of daily and monthly passes, but without the commitment or the upfront cost. With Hop Fastpass, you pay your way to a pass, one trip at a time, and you’ll never pay for a trip you don’t take.See How You Can Save
Top up your account anywhere, anytime using the Hop Fastpass app, website or phone hotline. Or add funds in the checkout lane at the supermarket, pharmacy or convenience store (more than 500 locations).Learn More About Reloading
Easy Account Management
You can quickly register your card and set up a funding source using our mobile-friendly website or app. (Or, just call us at our toll-free number and we'll get you all set up.)
You can manage multiple cards at-a-glance for your family or a group, see a history of your recent trips and transactions, and deactivate/reactivate a lost or stolen card. And don't forget to set up Auto-Load, so you’re never stuck without fare!
You'll still take cash, right?
Absolutely. You’ll still be able to use cash on buses, streetcars and MAX ticket machines to buy tickets and day passes — just like today — but you’ll miss out on Hop Fastpass benefits like automatic reloading and paying your way toward a 1-Month Pass.
Do I need a bank account?
Nope! You can get a Hop Fastpass card at any of the 500+ retailers in our network of supermarkets, convenience stores and pharmacies. You’ll also be able to top up your card at these stores using cash or a bank card. Additionally, we’ll provide cards to organizations that distribute fares to low-income and disadvantaged riders.
What if I get a pass from my employer?
Participating employers, agencies and schools will be able to provide employees, clients and students with Hop Fastpass cards. So if you’re used to getting a pass this way, the only change will be remembering to "tap on" each time you board.
Will there be service charges?
Unlike many prepaid cards, we won’t charge any fees for using Hop Fastpass. However, there's a $3 fee for the card itself, which will last up to 10 years. Replacement cards are also $3.
