"It's designed so well, so easy to use and understand...that I've actually not had much feedback to give! You all did a great job with this!"

" First purchase and ticket use worked like a charm. I started inputting my visa info as the streetcar came around the corner and I had my 5 tix purchased and one selected for use before the next stop. Nicely done. I especially like the font size (larger than expected) - helpful for 40-something eyes!”


Q: How do I use the app?

After downloading the free app, register a debit or credit card into our secure system. Select the fare type, select the quantity of tickets desired (A $5 minimum purchase is required) and then presses “checkout”. Tickets will appear in the “My Tickets” tab within the app. The rider can then board the Portland Streetcar.
When requested to show proof of valid fare by Portland Streetcar personnel or Transit Police officers the rider simply shows the unique digital ticket displayed on the phone. No additional scanning equipment required.

Q: If I purchase a Portland Streetcar ticket, can I also ride TriMet’s Max or Bus service?

No. Portland Streetcar tickets are valid for Portland Streetcar only. However, all TriMet tickets and passes are honored on Portland Streetcar.

Q: Do I need to be connected?

An Internet connection is required to purchase tickets, but you can use/activate your tickets offline.

Q: What if my battery dies?

Just like with paper tickets, you're responsible for making sure you have a valid fare at all times, so be sure to plan ahead!

I love being able to use an app to buy and display my ticket. However, I have to tap 4 times each time I want to use a ticket I've purchased. Why aren't my purchased tickets the first thing I see?
The map is unusable and I still have to use google to find out the schedule.

Barely Functional

For as proud and prevalent as Portland's public transit is, this app is very disappointing. I frequently do not take the street car because I know the app will be a pain to use. Even the fact that you cannot add stops as your favorite to check timing is a big pain. Please invest some time in this thing- it will pay dividends!
