TriMet is going to vote next Wednesday on whether to increase transfer times for one-way tickets to 2.5 hours, up from 2 hours, to better accomodate round trips. This would also clarify their official stance on one-way tickets, which is that round trips are not encouraged but rather an unintended benefit of making a shorter trip.
