Ride TriMet for free with a Timbers or Thorns ticket

This season fans can take public transportation for no added cost to watch games at Providence Park.

Soccer returns to Providence Park this Saturday when the Timbers take on the Colorado Rapids in their MLS season opener. Not long afterward on March 24, the Thorns will host NY/NJ Gotham FC for their first home game. Thousands of fans in green and gold and black and red will pile onto the MAX on the way to the match — and it won’t cost them a thing.

All season long, TriMet will offer free rides to Providence Park with your digital Timbers or Thorns ticket as fare. Just show your bus operator or customer safety supervisor and hop on board. It will be valid three hours before the match, as well as three hours following the final whistle.

Plan your trip.

Note: This promotion does not apply to Portland Streetcar or WES Commuter Rail.
