@AlYourPalster RIGHT?! I don't see how punishing someone without money is to make them pay money they may not have.— ™Driver (@trimetdriver) August 25, 2015

BS article attempting to convince us of the wonderfulness of Trimet and that Mcfarlane is a great leader
Remember Trimet people, its the "leadership team" that I have the problem with, not the rest of the Trimet workforce.

So the big day finally arrives and it just happens to be one of the most atmospheric polluted days in Portland history. Trimet decides to go ahead with their silly fireworks production. (branding the bridge into peoples brains) Unfortunately many citizens took offense to Trimet going ahead with this.There are dozens of tweets about it. You can check my feed if you want to see how many people objected but it was a lot. Below the break are the best tweets about this.

Enjoy music from Bear Water and the Student Loan Stringband, and visit with the Portland Picnic Society—they’ll be picnicking along with the crowd and sharing their best picnic tips from their new cookbook, “The Picnic” during the event.
Topping it off is a fireworks display from the bridge, set to be one of the biggest and best our region has ever seen!
|The on time parameters are actually pretty loose. Up to 10 mins late is considered on time|

This years silliness is the cute little yellow vest. Apparently the managers are on one of of their insane crusades and they are using their flunky white shirts to enforce this policy with ZEAL.

TriMet is poised to increase its payroll tax to fund expanded transit service within a month — despite opposition from some that pay it in the business community.

Let's upgrade MAX to buses. Yes, we actually would improve MAX by converting it from light-rail transit (LRT) to bus rapid transit (BRT). We'd get faster and more frequent trips with far fewer major outages and delays. TriMet could save tens of millions of dollars every year, be able to provide more capacity, and have a far more resilient system facing our next earthquake.
