TriMet Adopts Budget

TriMet has adopted a $741M budget for FY2008. In addition to a 5 cent fare increase and continuing construction of the Green Line and Washington County Commuter Rail, here are a few more highlights:

  • $1.7 million to begin replacing the original 20-year old Ticket Vending Machines located along Eastside MAX line with debit/credit-card only machines.
  • $1.1 million to retrofit 70 buses with new exhaust filters that reduce particulate and most other emissions by 90 percent. This is in addition to retrofitting now underway on 84 buses.
