TriMet increases fare enforcement citations, exclusions

Posted on February 1, 2012

Portland, Ore.-based TriMet released its latest fare enforcement figures for December, with a 10-fold increase in citations compared to December 2010.

In mid-July, TriMet shifted to fare enforcement over education when checking fares. Riders without a valid fare face a $175 citation or an exclusion of up to 90 days.

When TriMet moved to a stronger stand on fare enforcement, six new supervisors were hired, bringing the fare inspection team to an equivalent of 18 full-time fare enforcers. The dedicated fare inspection team is augmented by all other supervisors spending an hour a day checking fares.
