Equity? Not around here

Sophisticated Trimet watchers know the words 'equity' and 'transparency' ring hollow when used in relation to Trimet. The reality is there is neither transparency or equity when it comes to transit services in the greater Portland area.

This is most clearly illustrated when it comes to the Portland Streetcar. The Portland streetcar is a highly affordable transit option. It was free for five years now its a buck to ride.

The interesting part is that the most affordable transit is available to the wealthiest citizens of Portland.

Equity? Not around here
