Essential travel tips for Timbers fans

Parking near JELD-WEN Field (formerly PGE Park) is scarce. That means buses and trains are going to be crowded, especially after a match. We're running extra MAX service on game days, but please be patient and expect to wait for a train, as MAX can only hold about 300 people.

  Fall fare increase proposed to help offset rising costs

A fare increase is proposed for September 2011. The increase will help cover the rising costs of providing bus and rail service, and to avoid further major service cuts. Like most years, we plan to raise single fares by 5 cents. We also propose raising the price of an Adult 1-Month Pass by $4 and the price of a Youth Pass by $1. The TriMet Board of Directors will consider these increases at its April 27 evening meeting, with a decision expected at the May 25 meeting.
