TriMet unveils ’07 spending plan

Posted on April 12, 2006

The Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District (TriMet) in Portland, Ore., proposed a $343 million operating budget for fiscal year 2007.

Funding is included for the start of construction on an 8.3-mile light rail extension and a 14.7-mile commuter-rail line.

The budget asks that $1.4 million in U.S. Department of Homeland Security funds be used to install closed-circuit television cameras to downtown light rail station platforms.

TriMet also wants to spend $1 million to replace ticket vending machines with newer credit card-based fare collection machines.

The agency is planning to implement a 5-cent fare increase this summer to help with these projects.
