Sisters in Action for Power won a $16 a month pass for low income students to ride TriMet public transportation in the early '90's. Trimet is proposing to increase this fee by $1 per student who rides the bus. Sisters in Action are encouraging everyone to make their voices Wed April 23rd TriMet Public Hearing from 9 am to 11 am.
If you can't make this meeting, scheduled when most people would of course be unable to attend, you can email Fred hansen, gen'l manager of Trimet. His email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contact Sisters in Action for Power for more information, at (503) 331-1244. Or email your views on this outrageous fare increase, in this time of economic hardship, felt the most by low income students. Or see if someone can represent your views at the hearing if you can't make it.
Calling TriMet for the address where these Public Hearings will be held would also be a good idea, since this information was not available to Joanne on this morning's show, and this is another place to make your voice heard on this issue.
