The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
Alright. Now you're just teasing us :)
Surely you could do an expose on Astoria's bus system...or Tillamook's bus system, or Lincoln City's bus system. Heck, you could have ridden the bus from Portland to Tillamook! $10 each way.
Well I did see "the bus" in Seaside! Looked sorta like a airport shuttle!
I rode the portland to tillamook bus two summers ago. Very pleasant ride. Plus, bikes are allowed!
You know that it was a rental car company that inspired Gillig to build what was first known as the H2000LF bus, which would later be known as the "Gillig Low Floor" which was then morphed into what TriMet is buying for their next new buses.Hertz bought up bunches of those buses for airport-rental car shuttle fleets nationwide. (And lots of them are getting retired and you can buy one on eBay!)The Gillig Phantom actually got its start not as a transit bus, but as a SCHOOL bus. Los Angeles County Unified School District is a huge user of them.
