TriMet withdraws plan for immediate changes to Fareless Square

This info comes courtesy of the Portland Mercury Blog, which has posted a TriMet Press Release. As of this writing, the press release is not yet available on the TriMet web site.

Read the full post at the Mercury:

TriMet General Manager Fred Hansen may have skipped two public hearings on the matter, but apparently he got the message: Portlanders don’t want TriMet to curtail Fareless Square, cutting it back to 7 am to 7 pm, as a stop gap measure that TriMet says will shore up public safety. Hansen has killed that proposal.

TriMet will, however, do a “comprehensive review of fareless” over the next 18 months, as previously announced.

[Update: TriMet has now posted the Press Release and Fred Hansen’s statement on their site.]
