Trimet not increasing fares this year, except for the disabled

This is amazing since I heard them say clearly at a board meeting  that there was a fare increase was in store for riders this September and every September moving forward.

Fare increase proposed for Honored Citizens only
For the fourth year in a row, adult fares will not be increased. However, TriMet is proposing to increase Honored Citizen fares to restore the fare to half of an adult fare. The adult single ride fare is $2.50. Honored Citizen (HC) fares are currently $1 for a single ride ticket and $26 for a monthly pass. Federal Transit Administration guidelines and TriMet Board of Directors policy target, sets HC fares at half the regular adult fare. The proposal is to increase the single ride ticket 25 cents and the monthly pass $2. HC fares have remained constant since 2010. If approved, the new fares would take effect Sept. 1, 2015.
