Tram Anticipation, and Fares

I’m excited. Along with my fellow members of the Streetcar Citizens Advisory Committee, I’m going to get a ‘preview’ ride on the OHSU Tram this week. Look for pictures here afterwards.

Meanwhile, over at Commissioner Sam, there’s a question about whether the Tram fare should be seamlessly part of the TriMet/Streetcar pricing and transfer system, or whether a higher, standalone fare should be charged that covers the actual City contribution to operations (OHSU employees and patients ride free, paid for by OHSU, which is covering 85% of the operating costs).

I left a comment suggesting we split the difference.

Sam would like as much input as possible, so please head over there and let the Commissioner know what you think.
