This is the interesting statistic

About half (51%) of riders say they use a combination of buses and MAX, 37% use MAX only, and 13% use buses only.

This answers one of the main questions I have had.
How many riders originate on the bus then move to the max.
That looks to me like 51% of Max ridership actually originates on a bus.
I have extreme doubts of anybody driving to a park and ride to get on a max and then get on the bus after.

The way the survey is written, it counts you as a "regular" rider if you ride TriMet once a month.

And then it asks which modes you've used in the last year.

I would be counted as a "bus and MAX" rider, even though 99% of my trips are on bus. It would be more significant if the surveys were more detailed in asking what the typical mode was, rather than just what they've used in the last year. And I don't count a "regular" rider as once a month...I think regular ought to be at least three times a week, minimum.
