We’re proposing changes to fares and service that would take effect in September

Weigh in on TriMet's proposed changes to fares and serviceIn December and January, thousands of people weighed in on our “Budget Challenges & Choices” survey, where we outlined options for addressing an expected $17 million budget shortfall.

Your feedback, along with recommendations from our Board of Directors and our Budget Task Force, helped us narrow down our ideas into an initial proposal, which is now available for your review.

Although we designed it to minimize the overall impact on riders, our proposal calls for some big changes, including a fare increase, a transition to one-way/round-trip tickets, and the elimination of zones (including the Free Rail Zone), as well as some cuts to bus and MAX service. Once again, we want your feedback.

Taking TriMet to the Timbers?

Portland Timbers fans at gameHey, Timbers fans! We’re running extra service to get you there and back, but be prepared for crowded buses and trains. You can get there on MAX Light Rail and Bus Lines 15-Belmont/NW 23rd and 20-Burnside/Stark. If you’re parking downtown, you can also catch an express bus to JELD-WEN Field.
