Was there ever a news release about this?

Or was TriMet just planning to let people find out the hard way and simply not tell anybody unless they were looking around on their webpage for no reason (like i was)?

HOUSTON CHRONICLE

There is a widely held belief that more rail equates to more transit. In fact, the opposite is true. Out of the top 10 ranked metropolitan areas in the Brookings Institution report, six do not have a rail system. Of the four that do, their bus systems carry far more passengers than do their rail systems. There are only a handful of very dense cities where rail carries more people than buses. Even the much vaunted Portland light rail about which we have heard so much in Houston carries only about 65 percent of the passengers Portland's buses do.

MARY FETSCH ON LSD?

The art is “inspired by the site's history of hosting the Multnomah County Fair and its large amusement rides, as well as the bold colors of cultures represented in Rockwood and the universal symbolism of the sunrise,” said TriMet spokeswoman Mary Fetsch.

Whoa! MAX hit car at SE 117th and Burnside; teacher at my school witnessed. Driver seems OK, but shaken up.

Anyone surprised?

Retail reports show the rich are spending, but others are scrimping

The bottom fifth of earners, with a median household income of $9,846, spend 35.6 percent of their income on food and 9.4 percent on gas, according to Citi Investment Research.

The top fifth, whose median household income is $157,631, spend only 6.8 percent on food and 1.9 percent on gas. So they feel price increases less.
