The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
Now hang on here, this was a BUS rider improvement, we should be in shock and awe!
Hey, four bus shelters! According to Neil McFarlane during his "TweetChat" TriMet spent a million bucks on bus stop improvements.A Million Bucks! Oh My God!!!Except...I did a little research:http://www.trimet.org/news/releases/may24-rockwood-opening.htmMay, 2011: $5.3 million dollars spent on the Rockwood MAX station.http://www.trimet.org/news/releases/2010/dec1-civic-station.htmDecember, 2010: $3 million spent on Civic Drive MAX station.So...$1 million for bus riders...$8.3 million for MAX riders.Not counting, of course, the solar panel installation downtown, or the various unused bike and ride facilities...MAX riders got $8 for every $1 bus riders got. Impressive? I think not.
