Faresless square gone.......

Trimets board voted today to remove buses from Fareless square.
So trimet thinks bus riders are less deserving than rail riders. I propose a campaign of civil disobedience. If asked for a fare in Fareless, just say no!

Hmm... looks like I was wrong about the open house numbers. From the trimet website:

"This summer, we held open houses and asked for public feedback on the rail-only proposal, resulting in more than 600 comments. 51% supported changing Fareless Square to rail-only, while 21% wanted to keep it as-is, 11% supported eliminating it completely, and 9% wanted to keep a fare-free zone in some form."
