The public transport provider Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District (TriMet) has announced that riders in the Portland-Vancouver metro area can now add a Hop Fastpass(R) to Apple Wallet and use their iPhone or Apple Watch to pay their fare. Hop is the first transit (public transport) card in North America to launch in Apple Wallet. Portland-Vancouver residents can enjoy the tap-and-go convenience of Express Transit with Apple Pay leveraging the electronic fare system created by TriMet and INIT.

TriMet, C-TRAN and Portland Streetcar passengers can tap their iPhone and Apple Watch near any of the more than 1,200 INIT-supplied fare validators located at rail platforms, on buses and on streetcars around the region. With Apple Pay Express Transit there is no need to wake or unlock the device, open an app or use Face ID or Touch ID.

"TriMet has long been a leader in the transit industry, focused on the customer experience and ways to simplify riding transit," said TriMet General Manager, Doug Kelsey. "With Hop Fastpass(R), the first transit fare card in the US to launch in Apple Wallet, riders in the Portland-Vancouver area can simply tap-and-go by holding their iPhone or Apple Watch near a Hop reader."

When a rider taps their iPhone or Apple Watch to any of the fare validators, the INIT system calculates the fare, validates the transaction in the customer's online account, and displays the fare validation result to the rider in real-time. Boarding is fast and trouble-free.
