TriMet board approves phased-in fare increase for ADA LIFT rides

by

The TriMet Board of Directors today approved a phased-in LIFT paratransit fare increase of 30 cents each year until it reaches the same level as the All-Zone cash fare, which is currently at $2.40. The fare increase will help with the cost and growth of the service. The LIFT program, mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), has grown 37 percent during the past 10 years.

TriMet LIFT fares for the door-to-door paratransit service are low compared to peer agencies. Currently the LIFT cash fare is $1.85 for a one-way trip; the cost to TriMet is $29 per ride. The ADA allows paratransit fares to be a maximum of twice the cost of a fixed-route fare, or up to $4.80.

Most transit trips taken by people with disabilities and the frail elderly are on fixed-route buses and trains. About 11 million trips are taken on buses and MAX, compared to 1 million trips on LIFT. Fixed-route service has been cut over the past few years due to the recession and budget shortfalls at the expense of LIFT service.

LIFT fare increase phase-in

The fare increase will take effect on April 1 of 2012 and 2013.

Current April 2012 April 2013
LIFT Cash/Ticket Fare $1.85 $2.15 $2.45
LIFT Pass (unlimited use) $52.00 $62.00 $72.00
LIFT 20 Ride Punch Card (10¢ discount) $37.00 $41.00 $47.00

 

All-Zone cash fare is $2.40; monthly pass is $92. Once LIFT cash fares match the All-Zone fare, both will increase at the same rate going forward.

The Honored Citizen fare for fixed-route service will remain at $1. Riders eligible for Honored Citizen fares are those who are 65 or older, on Medicare or have a disability.
