Tickets and passes
Using TriMet fares on C-TRAN
TriMet tickets and passes are accepted on C-TRAN Local and Limited routes, but not on Express routes or C-VAN. Unvalidated TriMet fares are the same as cash, and upgrades are not available. TriMet LIFT fares and Portland Public Schools Photo ID Student Passes are not valid on any C-TRAN service.
If you have a C-TRAN All-Zone or Express fare, you can ride TriMet buses and trains. C-TRAN fares are not valid on LIFT. C-Zone fares (including Reduced Passes and C-Zone Day Pass) and the Clark College C-Pass are not valid on TriMet.
Fare changes effective September 1, 2014:
- C-TRAN and TriMet will no longer accept each other's unvalidated tickets or day passes. Passengers must start their trip on the system that issued their unvalidated fare.
- Express C-TRAN punch cards will be provided with an Express transfer that allows for continued travel on TriMet, through the date and time indicated.
- All-Zone and Express C-TRAN day passes may be used on TriMet, once they have been validated by a C-TRAN operator.
