We’ve discussed before that making the fare system for Streetcar easy to use is a challenge. Our fareboxes are somewhat unreliable and are difficult to use. We hope to acquire much better fareboxes when we make the leap across the river.
However, until then, we’d at least like to make them easier to understand. Local designer Sean Moran (artoflbliss.com) has worked up new graphics that we think might go a long way to help. The design is both intended to reference some TriMet fare machine idiom while retaining a separate identity for Streetcar.
He presented this idea of an enthusiastic Streetcar Citizens Advisory Committee earlier this month. Now we’d like your feedback!
