Perspective and Pushback on Fareless Square Changes

TriMet has a PowerPoint presentation (PDF, 1.6M) that they are using with various groups, I expect that something similar will be on display at the public hearings this week.

But not everyone is going quietly. The Lloyd Transportation Management Association (TMA), which contributes funding to help pay for fareless service to Lloyd District, has sent a letter to TriMet objecting (PDF, 210K) to the rationale and timeline for the decision limiting fareless square hours. My understanding is that other business groups may have similar perspective.

Along those lines, I had hoped to submit a distillation of our conversation on the data that should go into the analysis, but am currently swamped. Does anyone have the time to go through our discussion and prepare a bullet list? Thx.
