PORTLAND, Ore. — TriMet and its local transit partners are launching Hop Fastpass, a new electronic fare payment system that uses a contactless credit card-like device. The new payment method is in use on the agency’s Portland Streetcar, MAX light rail, WEST Commuter rail, and C-Tran Vine services.

Similar to debit cards, travelers can load up money on the card to pay for transit rides. In the upcoming weeks, the agency hopes to add a smartphone mobile wallet option that would be comparable to Apple Pay or other similar service.

To add additional funds to the Hop Fastpass, commuters can download the Hop mobile app via the Apple app store and through Google Play, or by calling the agency.

The cards can be purchased in gift card racks of local grocery stories and at agency-ran customer service desks.
