Got old tickets lying around? Use them up soon!
In 2009, we added a foil strip to our tickets for better security and to help speed up the fare inspection process. Now, we’re phasing out all of the older-style tickets.
So check your backpack, purse, wallet or junk drawer for old TriMet tickets (without a foil strip), and be sure to use them up by Monday, April 30, 2012—after which they’ll no longer be accepted as valid fare.
Exchanging your old tickets
If you want, you can trade in your old tickets before or after April 30, 2012, at the TriMet Ticket Office at Pioneer Courthouse Square, located at 701 SW 6th Ave. in Downtown Portland. You may exchange your non-foil tickets at the TriMet Ticket Office through December 31, 2012.
7-Day Pass scratch-off discontinued
As part of this transition, we’re also discontinuing the scratch-off version of the 7-Day Pass as of April 30. (You’ll still be able to purchase a 7-Day Pass from a ticket machine or the TriMet Ticket Office at Pioneer Courthouse Square, pre-validated for immediate use.)
