Transit Equity Back in the Crosshairs

With budget cuts at TriMet and new fare policy under consideration at Portland Streetcar, equity issues are front and center. So here are two attempts by agencies to get at these issues:

  1. TriMet will hold a budget forum in conjunction with IRCO (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization) specifically to reach out to transit-dependent folks:

    What: TriMet & IRCO Community Budget Forum
    When: Thursday, February 9, 2012 (reception starts @ 5:30pm, forum begins @ 6:00pm)
    Where: IRCO, 10201 10301 NE Glisan Street, Portland, Oregon

  2. The City of Portland has released their required Title VI analysis for Streetcar fare issues (PDF, 651K).
