No snow of course but everything went surprisingly well on my 88!
88 willow to BTC on time. Ear plugs change everything! And a 40ft bus!
48 bus running normal! With chains!

ATTENTION TRIMET DRIVERS TORTURE IS IMMINENT! TAKE STEPS TO MINIMIZE YOUR DESTRUCTION!!

TRIMET MANAGEMENT IS ABOUT TO ADMINISTER THE TRIMET TORTURE TREATMENT ON ITS FRONT LINE TROOPS! WE CAN MITIGATE THE TORTURE TREATMENT USING THIS METHOD, WHICH LAST TIME I WAS UNPREPARED FOR!

WARNING!! WARNING!! WARNING!!

The exalted high rulers of Trimet have decided that all buses will now be chained, snow or no snow!
We've all been through this before!
What that means for riders is that your bus may or may not show up and it will be unknown when it will show up!
Do not count on making any connections smoothly, or making them at all.
If you can limit your riding to  MAX service alone you will increase your chances of actually getting to where you are going in a timely manner!


BUS SERVICE IS EXTREMELY UNRELIABLE AT THIS POINT UNTIL  THE TRIMET GODS DECLARE AN END TO THIS EMERGENCY, REAL OR IMAGINED!
 (You heard it hear, from a real bus driver who does not mince words about the reality of our situations!)

PLACE YOUR BETS ON NO SNOW

Trimet is chaining all its buses at 4pm!
Since they have virtually a perfect record of getting it wrong, I would put my money on no snow today!

Now we know what really happened in the Sandi Day incident

She made the following comments to the officer that was attending to her immediately after the crash:

 “I did not see them” and
“I was paying attention to the other people in the crosswalk.”

I find that statement to be the most likely cause of this accident, and very believable!

Let’s talk about Part-Time operators

As I looked around at many forms of documents, that label is placed all over the place (TriMet postings, signup sheets, websites, and many other documents including our contract). Full-Time operators are not called Maxi-Runners and when the term Mini-Runner is used around customers or the general public it has to be explained that it is in reference to Part-Time operators and not in reference to the operators that drive the lift vans or smaller busses.
