Can I use my Hop card or ticket to ride the Portland Aerial Tram? April 12, 2019 21:46 Sorry, the Portland Aerial Tram does not accept Hop cards or tickets at this time. Related articles I notice the Hop reader plays a different sound sometimes when other riders tap. How, when and where do I tap with my phone? What if my battery dies? Will I still be able to ride? Would a fare inspector give me a citation? What do I do if the Hop reader isn’t working? Do I have to “tap off” too?
