Paper bus passes will no longer be sold at Fred Meyer or Safeway stores after next month.
The discontinuation is part of C-Tran’s larger transition to the electronic fare payment system Hop Fastpass, which can be used in the C-Tran, TriMet and Portland Streetcar systems.
C-Tran is giving away free Hop cards for anyone who doesn’t already receive transit passes from their employer. Visit C-TRAN’s customer service offices at Fisher’s Landing or Van Mall.
For more information about how to register, load and use the card, visit www.myhopcard.com or call 1-844-694-6722.
