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.”
