Cheer on the Blazers against the Rockets but don’t foul out by being caught without a fare on the MAX


Buy your tickets ahead of time with the TriMet Tickets mobile app then activate before you go

TriMet makes it easy to get to the Moda Center to cheer on the Portland Trail Blazers as they look to sweep the Houston Rockets in the first round of the playoffs. All four MAX lines, as well as six bus lines, serve the Rose Quarter area, but don’t spoil a winning night on the court by fouling out on the MAX. Fares are required on TriMet vehicles including the MAX. So play by the rules and have a valid fare tonight or anytime, or expect a $175 citation or exclusion from the system.

Playoff games go long, so buy a day pass
Whether using a mobile ticket or a paper one, buy a day pass. Since the game will be broadcast nationally so people across the country can watch the Blazers sweep the Rockets, the game will go longer than two hours. A day pass is the same price as two 2-hour tickets.

Day Pass Fares
Adults:                        $5
Youth:                         $3.30
Honored citizens:       $2
