Free TriMet Rides Feb 4th

In honor of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, TriMet operators will not collect bus fare on February 4th. In 2020, TriMet passed a resolution declaring Parks’ birthday as a day of remembrance across the public transportation system, including MAX, WES, and LIFT systems. Portland Streetcar and C-TRAN service are also offered without cost to riders this Saturday. Fare collection on all public transportation resumes on Sunday, February 5th, at 2 a.m.

Ticket machines will not allow ticket purchases on February 4th, and if you tap your Hop card or ticket that day, you will get a confirmation of valid fare but won’t be charged.
