Ticket Vending Machines

Purchase Your Pass from a Ticket Vending Machine (TVM)

Ticket vending machines (TVMs) are a convenient way to purchase the right fare card – from local routes to MAX services, to shuttles and ferries. TVMs even sell reduced fare passes for seniors and persons with disabilities.

Instructions on the screen prompt you how to select a fare card and pay for it. The machine will dispense your ticket upon paying. Please be advised that all passes are not active until inserted into the farebox. HRT’s TVMs accept cash, credit and debit transactions.

TVM on light rail issue an IOU?

If a TVM on the light rail system fails to give proper change, it is programmed to issue an IOU. A valid IOU of $5 or less can be redeemed Monday-Friday, between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., at 509 E. 18th Street, Norfolk. For more information, please call 222-6100.
