TriMet sucks: The end of fareless square

(AP) — PORTLAND, Ore. – Starting Sunday, there are no more free bus rides in downtown Portland.

The TriMet board voted last August to halt free bus service in downtown, Old Town and near the convention center and Lloyd Center. Rides in “Fareless Square” had been free for more than three decades, but the transit agency found it encouraged crime and annoyances on buses and trains.

The MAX light rail and the streetcar are still free in the downtown area.

Read the article here on OregonLive.

TriMet is digging their own grave. Not only have they been steadily raising the cost of public transportation (all the while reducing arrival times for buses and trains) but now fareless square is no more.  Thanks!
