TriMet Updates Service Cut Proposals

TriMet has a new press release out today outlining changes to the service cut proposal. They received over 1,500 comments.

Check out the press release for details.

In summary: Fewer cuts than originaly proposed to buses (5 lines cut instead of 12, but the “spared” 7 face other changes/consolidations.) MAX cuts stay basically the same as originally proposed, including on the yet-to-open Green Line. Further cuts will be proposed agency-wide due to reduced revenue projections, but won’t affect service in this round. If future service cuts are to be proposed, there will be another round of public involvement.
