Press**Watch: Trimet to double fares: take action!

Categories:
TriMet, the local bus service, proposes to effectively double fares for seniors-- who will have to purchase a separate fare for return trips.  Everyone, under their proposal, will have to buy a one-way ticket for $2.50-- if you don't qualify for the reduced "honored citizen" fare-- or buy a $5 day pass.  
 
You may comment until March 2 on the website, which forces you to click through several pages of their justifications before you can get to the feedback form.  Here is the link without the propaganda:  http://trimet.org/mailforms/budgetproposal
 
I suggest TriMet apply via our Congressmen and Senators for federal funds.

Digging back into Transportation Funding in the Budget Crisis and The Active Transportation Summit

A transportation bill is being on the floor right now that would cut all federal money for bike and ped programs and roll back almost 20 years of bike and ped improvements.  We'll look into what that could mean for the future of funding at the federal, state and local levels with Gerik Kransky from the BTA and Chris Rall from Transportation for America. Then at 11:30am Tara Corbin from Cycle Oregon will be joining us to talk about the upcoming Oregon Active Transportation Summit (April 16-17) and the state outlook for cycling and active transportation.

Do we really have a choice? Abe sizes up the 2012 presidential election.

It's the mating call of the Naderites: there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans. They're both corporate parties; the only difference lies in how far right-of-center they lie.

But there is a difference. It's not as stark as most progressives might like, but it's there, and it makes itself felt over time. That's why, as frustrated and as impatient as we might be, we've got to pay attention. With Joe away, Abe looks at the quadrennial liberal presidential dilemma.
