Did you know you can use your personal credit or debit card (NFC-enabled) to validate an Adult fare on a Hop reader? The same with your mobile wallet or smartwatch. Skip the ticket vending machine and just tap your phone at the Hop reader. It’s that easy!
And now, when you use your contactless bank card, mobile wallet or smartwatch to pay your fare—and ride regularly— you’ll automatically get the main benefit of a Hop Fastpass® card: earning a Month Pass as you ride, with free rides after you reach $100.
Construction of TriMet’s A Better Red MAX Extension and Reliability Improvements Project is nearing the end of the line in more ways than one.
The final planned disruption for the multi-year project will take place from Saturday, March 16, through Sunday, March 24, along a stretch of the MAX Blue Line in Hillsboro. Shuttle buses will serve closed stations between Orenco Station and Hatfield Government Center. This will allow crews to finish signal work in and around the Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport MAX Station, what will become the new end of the line for MAX Red Line trains beginning this summer.

BikeLoud PDX, a grassroots bicycling advocacy group, is conducting a Women Biking survey to gather information about the experiences of women with bicycling. They invite people who bike regularly, people who seldom bike, and people who don't bike at all to take the survey. BikeLoud PDX estimates that it will take about 10 minutes to complete the survey.
Timbers and Thorns fans take note: On match days, it just got easier to get to and from Providence Park. Beginning with the Timbers’ regular season home opener on February 24, and lasting all season long, you can ride TriMet buses and MAX trains to the match using your digital game-day ticket as your fare.
Beginning three hours before kickoff and ending three hours after the match, your ticket to the game doubles as your ticket to ride. Just plan your trip at trimet.org, then once you board, show your digital match-day ticket to the bus operator. If you’re taking MAX, your Timbers or Thorns ticket will be your proof of fare if you’re asked by Customer Safety Supervisors.

Various boards, committees and commissions advise the Board of Commissioners on matters of interest to people who live and work in Washington County. Members are volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC). Committees themselves do not pass ordinances to establish policy; their purpose is to study issues and make recommendations.
Serving on an appointed board or commission is an opportunity for Washington County residents to participate in decisions that affect them and to learn more about how local government works. In many cases, members must be residents of Washington County.
Per Board of Commissioners procedures, the County Administrative Office will solicit applications from individuals for a six-week period. Staff will keep the Commissioners apprised of applications received and approaching deadlines. The application deadline is March 12, 2024, or open until filled. For more information on how to apply, please visit the Boards and Commissions webpage.
