Keeping a watchful eye on Portland's 'world famous' transit system Trimet! (known to the locals as the Trimess)

When I was an operator at Trimet I held the dispatchers in pretty slim regard. As a matter of fact I did everything possible to avoid contacting them at all. Some of them were pretty pushy when I did end up having to talk to them.
But now that I don't work there anymore, and have really starting listening to the scanner regularly, I got to hand to to em. They do a pretty damn good job, really. (I don't know how they can handle it hour after hour, it would drive me INSANE)
