*Youth (18 and under): Anyone who is 18 years and younger can ride C-TRAN Local services for free including fixed-route, C-VAN paratransit (certain restrictions apply), The Current microtransit and Vanpool services. Additional charges apply if transferring to Regional and Express service, or to other transit systems. Operators may request to see ID for those who appear older than 18. In those cases, a valid student photo ID, state issued photo ID or Youth Hop photo ID can be used to verify age. 

Adult (19+) Regional fares that are paid with Hop allow you to ride Local and Regional services at no additional charge once you've reached the daily maximum of $5 or monthly maximum of $100. If you transfer to C-TRAN Express or TriMet LIFT using a Regional fare, you'll be charged the price difference for a single fare.  

Honored Citizen (senior, disabled and Medicare recipients) fares that are paid with Hop let you ride Local and Regional services at no additional charge once you've reached the daily maximum of $2.50 or monthly maximum of $28. If you transfer to C-TRAN Express, C-VAN paratransit or TriMet LIFT using an Honored Citizen fare, you'll be charged the price difference for a single fare.

C-VAN passengers who transfer to Local or Regional fixed-route services will be charged an Honored Citizen fare at the time of transfer. C-VAN passengers who transfer to an Express bus will be charged the full adult Express fare at the time of transfer; however, a 50% discount on Express fares is available for Honored Citizens who ride weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please see the fixed-route fare grid for more information.
