TriMet Proposal to Increase Honor Citizen Fares

TriMet is proposing to increase Honored Citizen fares by $0.25 for single tickets and $2 for monthly passes beginning September 1, 2015. This is the first increase for Honored Citizens since 2010, despite increases to fares for other riders.
TriMet is inviting interested community stakeholders to a public forum on March 5, 2015 from 1:00-2:00 pm at the TriMet Transit Mobility Center, 515 NW Davis Street in downtown Portland. Your participation will help shape TriMet’s strategy to make this fare increase as painless as possible for Honored Citizen riders.   Please RSVP to Nina Jones or 503-962-2337 if you would like to attend this discussion.
 For those interested in testifying on this proposed increase, TriMet Board meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 9 am. The hearings on the proposed Honored Citizen increase will be held on April 22 and May 27. For meeting locations and details on giving testimony click here.
