Keeping a watchful eye on Portland's 'world famous' transit system Trimet! (known to the locals as the Trimess)
"TriMet expects to lower the average age of its bus fleet to eight years by fiscal year 2020, and have the entire fleet made up of low-floor buses by 2017. By reducing the age of the fleet, TriMet will have more fuel-efficient, cleaner running buses. A younger fleet will also reduce the amount of maintenance needed, lowering repair and upkeep costs."Isn't this what I've been saying, over and over and fucking over again, for the last five years?!!!Gee, just think, had TriMet listened to me five years ago - imagine how much money TriMet would have saved in fuel and maintenance expense during that time, plus increased ridership due to more reliable buses!
