TRIMET BOARD-1997
MAX: The First Ten Years

Interesting to read the light propaganda from the 90's. Ridership on Trimet has tumbled since MAX was introduced into the Portland area. The document claimed 35% ridership and 90% approval with the MAX concept. Of course the propaganda machine of Portland Oregon has been spinning for years now. Portland is not a bad small city, it's pleasant enough here for sure.
But does that REALLY have anything to do with light rail? I seriously doubt it.
People came to Portland because property prices were still reasonable, which is no longer the case of course.
