When TriMet's nickel fare increase and service cuts
take effect on Sept. 1, there will be a demonstration in downtown Portland
to protest on that same day.
So mark your calendars if you're ticked about TriMet's higher fare and reduced service (or even about TriMet's recent decision
to ask voters to OK a $125 million bond this fall) to show up outside City Hall at 4 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 1 for a rally.
The demonstration is sponsored by Organizing People Activating Leaders
, a community organizing group that advocates for low-income people and communities of color.
