How to use it

On the bus: If your ticket is already validated, just show it to the operator and have a seat. Do not place validated tickets in the farebox. If your ticket is not validated, insert it into the farebox when you board. The operator will give you another ticket/receipt valid for 2 hours. Keep this ticket as proof of payment.

On MAX: Stamp your ticket in one of the validators at the MAX station, if it's not already validated. Board MAX and make sure you keep your ticket with you in case a fare inspector asks to see proof of payment.

On WES: Stamp your ticket in one of the validators at the WES station, if it's not already validated. Board WES and have a seat. Be prepared to show the conductor your ticket. He/she may check your fare as you board, or after the train leaves the station.

On the Portland Streetcar: Board the Streetcar and stamp your ticket in the validator on board, if it's not already validated. Keep your ticket with you in case a fare inspector asks to see proof of payment. Note: A Streetcar-only 2-Hour Ticket is also available for $1 at Streetcar stations and on board.
