TriMet fares in Portland are set to increase on Jan. 1, 2024, with a 12% rise for adult two-and-a-half-hour and all-day passes. The adjustment aims to offset growing operating costs, marking the first fare increase since 2012. Monthly passes for adults, currently at $100, will remain unchanged.

TriMet’s decision to raise fares faced opposition earlier in the year, with concerns about the impact on low-income residents. The fare increase excludes the monthly pass for adults but addresses inflation and rising operational costs accumulated over the past decade.

TriMet fares in Portland, effective January 1, 2024:

  1. Two-and-a-half-hour ticket (adult):
    • Current cost: $2.50
    • New cost: $2.80
  2. Day pass (adult):
