TriMet’s current operating budget includes some limited funding for work environment improvements. One area of improvement highlighted by operators and managers was the need to upgrade the seating in operator break rooms out in the field. Much of that seating is below standards for comfort and durability.
As an initial step toward a more comfortable work environment, we are upgrading the chairs located at Gateway, Clackamas, and Gresham Central. The new chairs will be arriving at these locations soon.
