  • Effective September 1, 2014, C-TRAN and TriMet no longer accept each other’s unvalidated fares. Passengers must start their trip on the system that issued their unvalidated fare.
  • Express punch cards are provided with an Express transfer that allows for continued travel on TriMet, through the date and time indicated.
