C-TRAN’s paratransit service provides transportation for those with disabilities
On Sun., Nov. 1, Hop Fastpass will make its debut on C-VAN, C-TRAN’s paratransit service that provides transportation for those with disabilities. The electronic fare payment system provides passengers with an easy-to-use and contactless way to pay fares on both C-TRAN and TriMet.
Passengers can easily load value to their cards through the auto-load feature available through www.myhopcard.com, or the phone app available through Google or Apple stores. For those who choose to register their Hop card, they can sign up for lost card protection which ensures their card’s value is protected in the event it’s lost or stolen.
Every current and active C-VAN passenger has already received a free Hop card in the mail, along with instructions for loading value, how to use the card and where to get further assistance.
C-TRAN’s website also features a “how to” video with step-by-step instructions for ambulatory and non-ambulatory passengers who use Hop on C-VAN.
While paper passes and punch cards are no longer sold, passengers who have unused C-VAN punch cards can use them through Dec. 31, 2021. Cash will continue to be accepted on all C-TRAN and TriMet services.
