Subject: Service cuts proposed: 4 bus lines discontinued, frequency
reductions on buses and MAX
Due to the continued economic recession and declining payroll tax revenues,
TriMet must cut its Fiscal Year 2011 budget by $27 million, which includes a
5 percent administrative cut, a salary and hiring freeze, reductions to bus
and MAX service, and a five-cent fare increase.
Our proposed service cuts, which would take effect in September, include
discontinuation of 4 bus lines and frequency reductions on buses and MAX.
Today, we begin a three-month comment and refinement phase where the public
can help shape the final service cut plan
