But there is ZERO information on the Trimet.org site exactly where a rider needs to go to qualify for a low income fare!
They brag that there are "40" places that have low income fares but not even one of those places is listed.
As they say on Twitter:
Low-Income Fare Programs
We recognize access to public transit is access to opportunity, so we've established Access Transit fare programs. The programs help low-income individuals access transit and offset the 2012 fare increase, which was the largest in our agency's history.We set aside a total of $1.3 million for these programs to mitigate the fare increase on low-income riders. Through these programs, we provide fares to non-profits and community-based organizations at a lower cost or at no cost, which they then distribute to their low-income clients.
