Jeff Ackerson wants to know

With the push to enforce the fares are Trimet managers going to continue the practice of using
Fare disputes as SIP's that get added to an operators file? Or will Trimet managers stand by operators who attempt to enforce fares? It's been a lose/lose proposition for operators up to now!


Question: How does a train know where to go?

How Tri-Met does things
You can't make this stuff up. Portland's transit agency is the laughingstock of the fare-dodging public, and it's needed many, many more fare inspectors for years now. So what does it do? Hire six new supervisors. Gee, Neil, how many actual fare inspectors could you get for the cost of six supervisors? Nine?
