On August 12, Portland Streetcar riders will no longer be able to purchase tickets through the Portland Streetcar Ticket App. You can still pay on your phone with Hop, which also works for TriMet bus and Max light rail, as well as C-Tran in Vancouver.

Previously purchased tickets on the mobile app will still be valid through December 31, 2019. As of January 1, 2020, we will no longer accept tickets purchased in the mobile app as valid fare.

You can also exchange unused, unactivated tickets in the mobile app for a free Hop card with equivalent value by stopping by the Portland Streetcar customer service office at 1350 NW Lovejoy, Suite 280 (enter through Nossa Familia Coffee - stairs/elevator to the left inside the door).

Learn more about using Hop to pay with your phone here.

TriMet will be suspending Max light rail service between the Interstate/Rose Quarter and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Avenue stations between August 4 and 17 for a planned track maintenance project. The project will affect Red, Blue and Green Max lines. Shuttle buses will serve Max riders between those stops.

Portland Streetcar A and B Loops run through Lloyd and connect to the Central Eastside, South Waterfront, Pearl District and Downtown. See our interactive system map here to plan your route.

For more information on the maintenance project and alternate options, visit TriMet's website here.

Pride Northwest's Portland Pride Parade is this Sunday, July 16, beginning in the North Park Blocks and ending at the Pride Festival in Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

While Streetcar service will be disrupted due to a rail repair project in the South Waterfront, it's still easy to ride to the parade!

Portland Pride Parade Route

From Downtown: Take the A Loop or NS Line along 10th Avenue and get off at NW Couch. Walk two blocks east to reach the Park Blocks and parade route.

From the Pearl District: Take the NS Line southbound along Lovejoy or 11th Avenue and get off at Couch, then walk three blocks east to reach the Park Blocks and parade route.

Unfortunately the B Loop will be suspended this weekend to repair a section of rail on SW Moody, and the NS Line will be served by a shuttle bus between Riverplace and the South Waterfront.
