The beauty of fixed rail

Due to police activity at SW 16th and Yamhill, MAX Blue and Red line service is disrupted. Shuttle buses are carrying riders between Galleria/SW 10th Ave and Goose Hollow stations. However, the police perimeter is not allowing buses to stop at Kings Hill/SW Salmon St or JELD-WEN Field. Riders should expect delays.
(this has been going on for HOURS now)

Ok let's be fair though, buses couldn't get through there either so this was not just a rail problem.

I got through fine!

Yeah but bus bridges weren't serving Jeld Wen or Kings Hill either.

Well then they shoulda taken the good old reliable 20 bus!
One block walk and direct service to GRESHAM!
BUS WINS AGAIN! TA DA!

Well sure, it's always good for people to know alternate ways out of downtown when MAX is out of commission (58, 54, 56, 20, etc)

All I was getting at is that this wasn't a rail breakdown problem, it was a crazy guy problem that shut down rail AND prevented a bus bridge in the perimeter :-p

Ya but I like to beat up on rail so this is a good opportunity to do that!
