The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
Love the suggestions for improvement-Best suggestion is encouraging drivers to hold their bladders until they reach the OTHER END OF THE LINE at Gateway.Also, so some buses have acceptably loud air starters? Has the NWDA compiled a list?
I think some of these committee members need to spend a day on the bus, and see if they can be "encouraged" to hold their bladders for an hour or so...Even airline pilots can get up and use the lavatory in mid-flight...many locomotive engineers can too (unless it's an Amtrak train running with one-man in the cab, then there's a little problem).
Yeah, I laughed at loud when I saw these.Any selected layover location brings undesirable impacts to adjacent neighbors. The NWDA asks that TriMet mitigate these impacts by: * Avoiding the assignment of buses with the loud air starters to this route. * Shutting off automated audio announcements at this location. * Providing restrooms for operators at alternative locations below the bridge and encouraging operators to use the dedicated restroom at the Gateway Transit Center at the other end of the route.Yeah good luck with that. It's sort of funny watching rich folks gripe about not having the bus, and then gripe again about having the bus.It sort of reminds me of some Sellwood residents who want a new bridge, but don't want non-local traffic to use it. That's not how it works, folks!
