Portland Debuts a Fairer Way to Pay for Transit Fares

“Now Portland’s transit agencies — Trimet, C-Tran, and the city’s streetcars — are showing the way to a fairer system.

The agencies have introduced “fare capping,” reports TransitCenter. That means riders who pay per trip do not incur further charges once they reach a certain threshold.

For example, a single Trimet bus trip costs $2.50, while a daily pass costs $5. Fare capping means a person who rides the bus three times in a day won’t pay for the third trip, even if she purchased each ride separately.”

While I can’t go to this, you should.

Talks & Thoughts: The Long Arm of History – Monuments and Statues Do Matter

A new community-centric public forum offering barbershop-style open discourse on current events that have an impact on the African American community. A panel presentation and community discussion about the impact and meaning of the violence in Charlottesville; the rise of white supremacy and white nationalism; and what the removal of our four Confederate statues means for Baltimore. Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead will moderate a conversation between our three “talkers” and the community around this topic.

Topic: The Long Arm of History: Monuments and Statues Really Do Matter

Moderated By: Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead, Associate Professor of Communication and African and African American Studies in the Department of Communication at Loyola University Maryland
