No service alert?

Some pretty major construction on SW Jenkins between Murray and 153rd, all traffic routed through the westbound bike lane, but no mention of how this is affecting the 67 in terms of delays or stop closures on the service alerts page...

Same thing happened, Barbur Boulevard south of Capitol Highway, Barbur was backed up all the way into downtown.

Affected bus lines 1, 12, 44, 45, 54, 55, 56, 92 and 94. Yet, absolutely NOTHING from TriMet.

Well...not quite nothing. They posted a neat YouTube video on their Facebook site.

Apparently, TriMet's marketing folks have plenty of time to sit around on a computer and surf the internet, while us bus riders who were predominately riding 1400s and 1700s/1800s in 85 degree weather on standing room only rush hour buses were suffering.

I don't know about the Web page, but my feed (which uses the same info) picked up four different alerts:




Or is that a different issue?

As for Burbur, I believe traffic was still flowing, so no changes were needed.

That was a different issue - that looks like it had been a traffic accident & the buses were routed via Jay St which connects 158th & Jenkins. This didn't involve Jay at all, we stayed on Jenkins but in the bike lane & the Nike stops eastbound weren't serviced. No service alert for any of that.
