TriMet: News Release - TriMet ridership up in October

The usual green line/WES bragging, still insignificant numbers in terms of total TRIMET riders.


Interesting that the graph they published looks like MAX ridership decreased but this press release says MAX ridership increased!

Greyhound bus driver 'HAD ENOUGH'

According to passengers, the driver ordered a passenger off the bus near Sikeston, Mo., because he was being unruly.
Richmond said the company has extensive training for its drivers about how to handle passengers and that it would be acceptable to put an unruly or threatening passenger off a bus.
The driver then pulled over in Cape Girardeau, saying she was leaving. She walked off the bus and waited outside for someone to pick her up.
Passengers called 911; when police arrived, they ordered the driver back on the bus.
She complied, but after driving to a gas station in nearby Charleston, she left again at about midnight.

TRIMET FARE EVASION TICKETS WAY OVER PRICED COMPARED TO OTHER CITIES

As a freeloader, Lexington was not alone - although a precise figure is difficult to calculate, the T estimates that tens of millions are lost annually through fare evasion. He was not even alone on this trolley. Half a dozen riders in the rear of that car Tuesday had boarded with no intention of paying. Garvey asked Lexington for an ID, preparing to write one of the 3,000 citations for $15 that the T issues annually.
