So when somebody like the person pictured gets on the bus and pays $1, I NEVER, EVER questioned that. It was $1 more into the Trimet coffers. She most likely had no more money. I saw it as a positive for Trimet not a negative
Unfortunately my opinion was the minority opinion back in the days when I drove buses at Trimet.
Now the poor woman is in jail for 19 months over $1.50 and her inability to control herself
Reminds me of the story of MEJA POOT who was 25 cents short on his fare. The bus driver made a deal out of that which eventually lead Meja's death and the closing of a psychiatric hospital.
You never know where a fare dispute will end, which is why I never in my 15 years at Trimet got hot and bothered about a fare
