Joy of Laundry is a small business in North
Portland at the end of lines 4 and 44. To express his appreciation for TriMet’s service and
operators’ hard work, the owner makes his restroom available to operators on layover. Last
month, this small business owner had to pay a big plumbing bill because a TriMet employee
apparently used the restroom when it was marked “out of order.” What had been a broken
water main became an even messier problem. This unfortunate story is a reminder that the
familiar rules really do matter:
• Don’t flush what shouldn’t be flushed
• Don’t use a restroom labeled “out of order”
• Don’t give access to non-TriMet personnel
• Leave no trace—no litter, graffiti, spills, etc.
In other words, treat layover facilities as you would your own property—or better! Thanks for
doing your part to keep these facilities available.
