New fare box busted? Don't call us!

They have installed "refurbished" but the supervisors cannot fix them so don't call in, write a work card.  Unbelievable!

Remember:

MAX gets the new stuff. Like lots of new TVMs (that just don't accept cash).

Bus gets the crappy hand-me-downs.

Why, of course, Erik!
Could we ever expect anything different?

I happen to be interested in this subject so I have some knowledge. They are supposed to be "as new" and were much much cheaper than completely new ones.

See http://www.trimet.org/pdfs/meetings/board/2011-10-26/Res-11-10-76.pdf

BTW, that file is missing from their Web page of old resolutions:

Here is why the bus farebox really doesn't matter... I think they're close to #1 on the list, they appearently call themselves "Portland Metro Area (TriMet)"
