Keeping a watchful eye on Portland's 'world famous' transit system Trimet! (known to the locals as the Trimess)
Typical Trimet predation BTW-thousands of legally purchased tickets now worthless
Expiring old tickets without a printed expiration date would be in direct violation of Oregon State Law.http://pdfcast.org/pdf/trimet-tickets-orsDownload and share.
wow-that is interesting!
I went to the link but didn't see anything about that.
That link talks about 'gift cards'
Per the definitions made in ORS 646A.274 - Definitions for ORS 646A.276 and 646A.278, one could make the argument that the same applies to TriMet transfers. A TriMet transfer is "a prefunded record evidencing a promise that the issuer will provide goods or services to the owner of the record in the amount shown in the record."Additionally, TriMet transfers do not fit the excluded definitions, as those very specifically outline "prepaid telephone calling cards, prepaid commercial mobile radio services" ... and "...usable with more than one seller of goods or services."
Good luck suing TriMet over that.
I was wanting them to accept my Rose City Transit tokens, under the idea that TriMet took over Rosy's obligations and that they included providing promised and paid-for rides. And there was an online seller that had them for I think 5/$5, which was cheaper than buying new, TriMet fares.
