Money money money EVERYWHERE at Trimet

Just not for buses or bus service. (Who's the director of transit 'equity'?)


Interesting correspondence between union members and union officials

The following are some communications between ATU 757 members and union officials:

Transit that needs no public money

The impending departure of Metropolitan Transportation Authority chief Jay Walder for the more lucrative shores of Hong Kong to lead its metro and commuter rail system has one silver lining: It has brought our attention to a top-notch metro system that not only can pay its chief a million-dollar plus salary, but which doesn't need public money at all. In fact, the Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway Corp. actually makes money.

Express bus service to Milwaukie area soon to be a thing of the past due to rail

Too bad that rail is such a fixation around here, people could be riding like this:

While the earth exists in constant chaos, there is something bigger and more important

Republicans have intentionally destroyed this country

The reason that the Republicans deliberately destroyed the balanced budget and created unprecedented government debt was precisely in hopes that at some point they could use the debt as an excuse to destroy social security, medicare, and myriads of educational and health programs. They represent rich people, and the rich don’t want to be having to bear their fair share of the national burden. What better way to get out of having to pay those pesky taxes than making sure the government doesn’t do anything for anyone but the rich.
So everything unfolding in Washington was planned out in a room in 2001, and is going according to plan.

EMAIL FROM DRIVER

Yesterday, two thermometers in Hillsboro read at 93 degrees.Like filthy buses,hot vehicles
which sit for 20 minutes at layovers,are a health risk.As a heart attack survivor,I was very uncomfortable for the last 5 hours of my shift as were my passengers.I even saw 2 dinosaurs working the 57 line even though there were many rows of 2900's ready to go at Merlo.
(It's very sad indeed that our management allows us to suffer even though they have the means to fix the issue)
