Use your match-day ticket to take TriMet to Timbers and Thorns games this season


Your digital ticket doubles as your TriMet ticket for up to three hours before and after matches

Timbers and Thorns fans take note: On match days, it just got easier to get to and from Providence Park. Beginning with the Timbers’ regular season home opener on February 24, and lasting all season long, you can ride TriMet buses and MAX trains to the match using your digital game-day ticket as your fare.

Beginning three hours before kickoff and ending three hours after the match, your ticket to the game doubles as your ticket to ride. Just plan your trip at, then once you board, show your digital match-day ticket to the bus operator. If you’re taking MAX, your Timbers or Thorns ticket will be your proof of fare if you’re asked by our Customer Safety Supervisors. Then, just sit back, relax and leave the driving to us.

TriMet’s partnership with the Timbers and Thorns FC makes it easier to get to and from games, but the benefits go deeper than that. Riding transit to and from the game is fun and convenient, a way of building camaraderie with fellow fans without the hassle of finding parking. Plus, it’s a guaranteed “W” for the environment no matter how the game turns out. Every time you ride transit, you’re helping to relieve congestion and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By taking automobiles off the road for unnecessary trips, we can all do our part to help the region realize its carbon-reduction goals.

Planning your trip

Planning your trip to the match is easy using TriMet’s trip planner on, with information on travel and walk times, as well as transfers. You can also use the webpage on your mobile phone to track TriMet’s buses and trains in real time on our interactive map.

Getting there

If TriMet got you any closer, you’d be on the pitch. Our MAX trains drop you off and pick you up across the street from Providence Park. Three regular service bus lines, Line 15-Belmont/NW 23rd, Line 24-Fremont/NW 18th and Line 20-Burnside/Stark, all serve the stadium. Line 6-ML King Jr and Line 58-Canyon Rd stop about three blocks away on Southwest 18th Avenue.

Keep in mind that stations, buses and trains may be busier than normal. Stay safe and watch out for each other, and if you see unsafe behavior or conduct that makes you uncomfortable, text or call 503-238-7433 (RIDE) to contact the TriMet Security Support team 24 hours a day, or submit a report online. You can also report it to TriMet personnel. For urgent concerns, alert the operator or call 911. We will have extra security staff available at Providence Park before and after matches.
