JEFF ACKERSON ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE TRIMET'S 'OPEN DOOR' POLICY


Due to several incidents, the last being the dog poop incident, Merlo’s 757 representative has petitioned through the grievance process to have all buses close their doors at layovers.

In a past incident, there was a pipe bomb discovered on the bus and the driver was written up for not performing a bus inspection! (Trimet true to form always blames the operators)

In another incident, the driver returned to his open bus to find someone rummaging through some personal property which then lead to a physical attack on the operator. The operator ended up in the hospital.

With all the interest in security nowadays, the open door policy when the bus is at layovers without the operators present is completely self defeating to the concept of security.

It’s too bad that the few rotten apples among us ruin things for the majority of us!

I SEND OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION TO JAY JACKSON-HEARINGS OFFICER-STEP 2 GRIEVANCE

Mr Jackson;

I have been informed that you will be the hearings officer for my step two grievance petition.

I request you subpoena Josh Collins for this meeting or verify that I had a conversation with him at a Trimet board meeting about my recording dispatch communications and that he did not inform me it was against Trimet policy to do so.

I further request that you are familiar with the response that was sent to all the management staff about this.

If those documents are not available to you you can review them here:

I plan to call several witnesses in my defense.

BUS IS TURNING YOU MORONS!

Chris Day drove one of these buses recently and he pointed out that these  "buses for moron's" actually talk inside to the moron (driver) something completely different than what is being said to the moron's outside!

In the inside above drivers head “Caution look both ways” (this is said only once)
On the outside “Pedestrians, bus is turning
only the outside will say first in English then in Spanish then again in English.

OH MY GOD, CAN THIS BE TRUE? MINISTRY IS NOT COMMENTING?


The latest performance statistics are out!
And if you look at the chart, it appears that BUS RIDERSHIP IS INCREASING FASTER THAN RAIL RIDERSHIP!
The Ministry of Propaganda is strangely quiet this month?

NOT SURE WHERE THIS COMES FROM BUT IT SURE IS INTERESTING!

PORTLAND A FOOT'S MICHAEL ANDERSON RESEARCHED THE US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT RANKINGS

Michael is one of the best transit related investigative reporters.
He is not beholden to any corporate structure so he has independence that most of our more familiar news people do not have.

In any scientific study the results must be able to be duplicated by other people to be valid.
Michael is unable to duplicate US News results using their exact same  criteria.

Something stinks. It turns out Portland is #7, not #1.
