WEEKLY READERSHIP REPORT

Italy makes the top ten for the first time!

I thought the TVMs were supposed to be working...

So I take my son Carter downtown to check out the Amtrak 40th Anniversary train.  I decide to take MAX in from the Sunset TC since I was planning on doing some other things in Beaverton on my return.

On my return trip, the cash TVM at Pioneer Courthouse Square westbound was broken.  OK, I'll give TriMet a pass here.  I walk over to the new Finnegan's Toys & Games, then to Galleria & 10th.  The cash machine there is broken too.  WTF?

So I call 238-RIDE.  I press option '5' to report a broken TVM.  It plays through the spiel and right as it's supposed to put me to a mailbox...I hear the TriMet duh-duh-duh-da-duh jingle and the menu starts over.  Now I can't even report a broken machine?

So, TriMet's officially out $1.50 because I tried to be a good guy and pay the fare even though my son just turned seven a few months ago.  What happened to the machines that were supposed to be working?

PROTEST IN SEATTLE TELLS RIDERS TO STOP PAYING FARES!

"To the bus driver he said, 'We just wanted to let you know that we are not going to pay the fare. It costs too much to ride the bus,'" she said. "I was pretty upset about it."
