Funny how participating in the Bus Rodeos have been cut, but RailVolution has not.I thought bus and rail were equal. Not so much. Rail parties are preserved at all cost, including flying managers all over the country to be wined and dined in four-star hotels and restaurants. Bus drivers who actually demonstrate safe, reliable driver...awww, screw them. They don't need recognition, not even a lousy $50 gift card to Fred Meyer, but the Managers sure get their dinners at a fine steak house - fully paid for, of course, by TriMet and the good residents, citizens, taxpayers and riders of the District.
The CHURCH OF LIGHT RAIL has no equivalent for bus service.
I think you're missing the mark. None of those topic proposals have anything to do with rail operation anymore than they do bus operation... It's all transit oriented development & community building. There hasnt been a rail rodeo since 2008, same as the last bus roadeo. This isn't bus vs rail, this is development vs transit operations, which is a much bigger problem.
I don't see where it says anything about parties. I see workshops and learning events.
Plus, they've done it here, too, in the past: http://railvolution.org/past-conferences/2010
