I wonder how much revenue is lost on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis just by maintenance issues that prevent fare collection.A single fare box on a bus for eight hours a day might see 30 boarding rides a day, or 240 fares...if 50% of them (since the other half are pass riders) are paying an average fare of $1.75 that's $210 or enough money to cover the operating expenses of that bus for two hours.One broken farebox a day equals $76,650 in lost revenue. Or the cost of one employee.
Great. So basically updating things so you can't fix them when they break later. Bravo, TriMet. You have shown your great knowledge once again.
