Annual Pass Program

Interested employees get a 1-Year Pass; easy, once-a-year distribution

Our Annual Pass Program is a convenient option for employers who want to offer access to TriMet’s annual transit pass. You provide 1-Year Passes to interested employees (12 months of transit privileges for the price of 11).

How it works

  1. You buy annual passes for employees who want to use TriMet. You pay $1,100 per employee (12 months for the price of 11). The passes may be used on buses, MAX Light Rail and WES Commuter Rail, as well as the Portland Streetcar and Portland Aerial Tram.
  2. Additional passes purchased during the year are prorated, so you can add employees to the program whenever you want.
  3. After we sign a contract, we’ll send you TriMet stickers for your employees’ ID cards. (If your employees don’t have photo IDs, we can provide those too... free of charge!)
  4. Finally, we’ll help kick off your new program by holding a transportation fair at your workplace. Of course, we’ll provide ongoing support and resources to help make your program a success.
