Just abolish fare.— Laura Goodfellow 🚌🏃🏼♀️ (@transitrunner) September 4, 2019
Instead of encouraging use of a safe & sustainable mode (transit), we've set up an elaborate, complex payment system that results in routine harassment of many riders and punishment of those who can't pay or make a mistake. https://t.co/ECYQWcsuYp

Portland screams about traffic, environmental impact and gentrification, however the chosen methods to mitigate these negative outcomes seem to maintain the status quo (inequality) rather than introducing something progressive like free public transport.
I own a car and pay relatively high rent. I cannot afford to buy public transportation tickets, too, so I do not ride public transportation. If it was free, I'd be using it.https://pamplinmedia.com/pt/10-opinion/436312-347353-letters-use-tolls-to-make-public-transportation-free
