PPS Trimet Passes: Extended to End of School Year

Even in the midst of so many cuts to the state budget, a grassroots effort to save the TriMet bus passes given to all public school students in PPS (to give them easy access to school, libraries, work, resources, etc.) succeeded!  Hurrah!  While they still don’t know exactly where the money will come from or if the program can be extended to future years, this is a small victory that must be celebrated…especially when it comes down to access and equity in our public school system!

Kudos to all who worked on this and who wrote letters of support!  This is proof that our voices do matter!
