No fares would be great! Would love it if all of trimet within the city were fare-free. It seems like the only way to get critical mass adoption. Whatever they're doing today isn't working.

2069 Send Crisis Response team for self harm


We FOIA'd 2,600+ TriMet survey responses for an article about the proposed fare increase. Grab the new issue, if you want to know what the results are! + an exciting new monthly column covering all things labor in Oregon

This isn’t frequent. It’s terrible.

I'll explain some of the logic over dinner, but basic gist, during the morning hours, it should be frequent to get people into downtown. Since Covid I am not sure that still applies.

“Frequent service” Uh huh…

"Good" transit is debatable. I use trimet a lot but it's impractical for a lot of trips, especially late at night and when you're not going in and out of downtown. Frequency is abysmal, transfers take forever. Backyards are a big reason why: not enough density

Or they don't show up at all like today. Trimet sucks.

I ride the Blue Max during peak hours & I am struggling to find one reason to back this Red expansion.

Why can trimet never ever ever run on time??? Love sitting idly on a train that’s not moving and is 20 minutes overdue

Nope, it’s because Trimet cannot find anyone to work for them anymore. This used to be 15 minutes or less service.

CLICK---->TriMet's "Tactical "Thinking" Ticket Checkers" of 2023? We'll see if the law allows.

I really believe in public transit and want to support it as a public service but employing police state tactics seems a little extra

giant team of fare enforcers are out at Hollywood transit center. Strategy is two fare collector's check while two goons block exits. Then there are a minimum of four additional outside the bus for some reason? Good thing they checked everyone for their $2.50

is "giving" free rides on 2/4 so they're sending out there goin squad to collect everyone's $2.50 to make up for the lost income lol

minimum 8 fare inspectors at Hollywood Transit center working in teams of four, two fare inspectors, two goons blocking the exits. Imagine being so concerned with $2.50 you literally block the doors in case someone tries to leave.

One icy morning my car slid into the center of the street. A bus was barreling down on me, my life was over. But that bus driver swerved into oncoming traffic, driving them to the shoulder and missing me by inches. I can’t thank that hero so I’ll just thank you, Dan.

TriMet loves to pretend 20-40 minute headways are “frequent service.” I often end up walking places when I’m in Portland bc it’s faster.

it's extremely funny to see TriMet honoring Rosa Parks by offering fare free rides while also planning to hike fares like, "yes, we acknowledge the role fares play in harming and excluding marginalized people from transit but we still intend to make it worse with fare hikes."

I can see this presented to Trimet's vig managers. "We will turn the screws on poors and POCs to make our payment sirs."

Had anyone noticed the busses talking about “it’s required to ride with valid fare” lately? #trimet
