In the POST BELOW this we see how the fat heads that run Trimet customer service (term used loosely) and training DO NOT EVEN KNOW THEIR OWN RULES! And for this type of incompetence the tax payers are funding $30+ dollars an hour plus the usual GOLDEN benefits! How can we as union members possibly defend ourselves to the public when we see example after example of incompetence and misuse of tax payer funds?
There is an argument on the comments section about the word MAY. I worked at Trimet for 15 years and was told THAT THE BUS IS IN REVENUE SERVICE ON DEAD HEADS AND THAT CUSTOMERS CAN RIDE ON THE DEAD HEAD. There is absolutely not one logical argument to deny a rider a ride along the dead head or to the garage. The driver is making the usual $25/hr for driving empty, it should not be a choice.
