TriMet's fourth service cut in sixteen months kicks in tomorrow, eliminating the 27 and 157 lines and reducing service on many other lines. The fare also jumps by one ridiculous nickle, meaning that buying a two-zone ticket will cost you $2.05. I guess you finally have a reason to save your pennies.

Environmental justice group OPAL is organizing a protest at city hall in honor of the occasion. Meet up on city hall's steps at 4PM for a march or at 5PM for a rally.

Meanwhile, TriMet is heading to the ballot in November, banking on voters approving a property tax increase help TriMet fix up failing bus stops and replace old buses.

For those of you with a nickle to spare, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance's Bike Commute Challenge starts tomorrow, too.
