Subject: TriMet Commmunity Workshop – Tuesday, May 7th
Date: Thu, 2 May 2013 23:25:54 +0000


We’ve heard from our riders and others that we need more service, not less. Our riders are frustrated by higher fares, longer commutes and overcrowded buses. We want to grow our service again, but like many organizations, TriMet is struggling with skyrocketing health care costs.  These costs are threatening our ability to deliver the transit service our community needs and deserves.

Please join TriMet General Manager Neil McFarlane to learn more about the region’s service outlook and what hurdles we need to clear to expand service again.  In addition, small group workshops will offer opportunities to focus on specific issues – what’s new in fares, access to transit and system planning – to name a few.      


Your feedback is important to us – I hope to see you there.    

And please post this invitation to your website and pass on to others who also may be interested in attending.

Thank you.
