TransLink is discontinuing several customer fare programs as part of an overhaul of its "fare tariff."The agency's board made the changes out of a sense of "equity and fairness," said Bob Paddon, TransLink's executive vice president of strategic planning and public affairs, in a press release."We took a good hard look at our programs to determine which ones still make sense. We found some programs benefited a select few people and companies," he said.Some of the programs to be discontinued were originally introduced at a time when TransLink needed to attract new customers, particularly when the Millennium Line opened in 1999 and following a strike in 2001.Discount programs to be discontinued as of Jan. 1, 2014, include: • the Employer Pass, which provided an extra 15 cent discount to members and required a 12-month commitment. Riders can continue to purchase monthly passes.• Faresaver tickets, which will begin transitioning out on Jan. 1, 2014. A discount on regular fares will provided within the new stored valley option for Compass Cards.• free travel for family members of monthly pass holders on Sundays and holidays.• West Coast Express seven-day and 28-day passes.• West Coast Express $1 fee for bikes. Riders will be able to transport bikes for free.
