The end of the year is near, and what a year it was. More things made a debut in (West Coast) Transit this year than any other year I can think of.
With that, I bid farewell to 2009, and I am not so sure about looking forward to 2010 yet, but it will be interesting to see what hell will break loose, and what will improve. I spent the entire year unemployed, thanks to the one passenger railroad you never see mentioned on my blog, and never will.
I hope you all have a great Holiday Season, I will be on hiatus until after the First of the year, See you all in the new year!

Free Rail Zone
In January, Fareless Square becomes the "Free Rail Zone"
As of January 3, 2010, Fareless Square will become a free zone for rail only. That means you can still ride MAX and Portland Streetcar for free in downtown Portland and the Lloyd District, but not buses. To help communicate this important change, we're changing the name of the zone to "Free Rail Zone."
The Free Rail Zone will have the same boundaries as Fareless Square: Most of downtown Portland (within the boundaries of the Willamette River, NW Irving Street, and I-405) and MAX stations from the Rose Quarter to the Lloyd District.
This winter, we'll be adding new Free Rail Zone emblems on customer information displays at rail stations within the zone boundary.
To help our Honored Citizen riders who live in downtown Portland, TriMet is offering a newdowntown-only bus pass.
