The Fareless Square Discussion Slows Down

After hearing from those who are for or against limiting Fareless Square hours to 7AM – 7PM this week, TriMet has decided to take a “longer look” at the subject. Thus, the limited hours discussion has been tabled for the time being.

In a statement posted on TriMet’s site yesterday, General Manager Fred Hansen said, “After evaluating more than 700 e-mails, letters and comments from two public hearings held earlier this week, one thing is clear: there is a lot of passion and strongly held views about Fareless Square…Taking quick action on changing Fareless Square is obviously easier said than done.”

The public is still encouraged to send comments on the proposed changes. Visit TriMet’s site to submit your thoughts and to read Hansen’s full statement.

    You know it’s never really “fareless”. Taxpayers cover the costs.

    All The Tri-Met Non Decision really means is that the Fix is in.
