Fares and ID Cards

Paying Your Fare

You may pay for your ride on C-TRAN in a variety of ways—cash at the time of boarding (exact fare is required when paying with cash, as our drivers don't carry change), or you can purchase a 10-ride punch card, day pass, or monthly pass from one of our pass outlets which are located throughout Clark County (see our "Where to Buy" section below).

Transfers are issued only for All-Zone and Express fares that are paid with cash or punch card.

All riders are expected to pay the full appropriate fare. C-TRAN All Zone and Express fares are accepted on TriMet, making travel between the two systems a breeze.
