Why did TriMet create this pass?

As of September 1, 2012, TriMet and Portland Streetcar no longer offer a free-ride zone in Downtown Portland. We created the Honored Citizen Downtown Portland Pass to help ensure that senior citizens and people with disabilities can continue to use transit to access essential services such as medical care, social services and shopping.
