TriMet has a new program for distributing fares to low-income system users via non-profit providers.
So for example if you were going to a non-profit medical clinic and were income-qualified, the clinic could provide with you with free tickets for your visit.
TriMet is putting about $300K into this program, with up to $25K in fares going to any one non-profit. Ride Connection will administer the program for TriMet.
