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
