When Stephen Weber jumps from using the MAX to the Portland Streetcar or to a bus, he no longer has to worry about buying separate tickets. He just taps his Hop Fastpass, which he's been beta testing for TriMet since March, and jumps on board.

The release of the card this month eliminates the need for paper tickets. Eventually, as testing continues, Portlanders will be able to use a smartphone to access transit.
