The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
How does a picture of Cookie Monster at a bus stop apply or assist the transit customer?Who is it for? What is the purpose..is it merely political orchrestration?What is the "fully loaded" cost of the TriMet employee(s) to produce this?By the way, I suspect Operator Fung is still cleaning his own bus; operators are still struggling everyday to do their best while explaining to a customer why the earlier bus didn't show; and highly skilled Dispatchers wait patiently for " TriMet managers" to make decisions for them.
Doesn't it encourage people to think good about TriMet and think about riding? Also, it appears that TriMet did not take the picture but used someone else's, so the time spent on it was very minimal.
Trimet likes cuteness!
So, Jason, how does wallpaper decorated with New York City transit maps make you feel about TriMet?Nevermind that there were significant service delays today that definitely warranted some extra attention and alerts to riders - those weren't posted across TriMet's official marketing channels. But wallpaper - that was.I'm sure you'll have a perfectly logical excuse as to why New York City Transit wallpaper was more important to the users of TriMet's service, than up-to-date bus delay information. Because having a map of the subway system of a city 3,000 miles away makes me feel great to live in a city that doesn't have a subway. Unless you're talking Subway restaurants. And I don't think that's what TriMet had in mind.
those weren't posted across TriMet's official marketing channels.Are you sure about that? I've seen:-Service Alert: 6/6-6/7, MAX trains and some bus lines will experience delays due to Fleet Week ship arrivals-Service Alert: 6/6, 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., lines 12, 75 and 77 will be detoured due to Junior Parade-Various Service Alerts here about the bridge lifts and other things-This alert that came from their data feed, as well as ones for other lines in the areaup-to-date bus delay informationWhat's wrong with calling (503) 238-RIDE, or checking the Web site, or the mobile Web site, or Google Maps, or sending a text message, or using one of many 3rd-party apps which TriMet makes data available for? Most all of them can provide up-to-minute delay and detour info (which is what you actually want).
