How many runs does Trimet cancel each day?

Canceled Muni Bus Runs Draw New Attention to Bay Area Drivers’ Absenteeism - NYTimes.com
But Mr. Austin, of the Muni operators union, said hiring drivers would not be as easy as it once was. He said Muni drivers bore the brunt of the blame for Muni’s slow and often late service.
“People aren’t clamoring to work here anymore,” Mr. Austin said. “With adversaries in City Hall, adversaries in the public, 
it rapidly becomes a job that’s just not worth it.” (this is the main reason I am getting out now)

I've heard from passengers that private carriers follow busy bus routes and transport intending passengers to their destination for cash in New York. That's how it done in America, I see this as a future trend as the most likely way to transport those who need and appreciate the RIDE!

How many runs *does* TriMet cancel? I asked for these numbers a year or so ago and the number of "missed pullouts" was negligible -- like less than 10 per month. Does this seem right?

NO IT DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT!
NOT AT ALL!

"miss pullouts" wouldn't include later trips which don't get run
