The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
note what's going faster at 15 seconds into the video
Funny - at 1:05 the Operator is holding a microphone to a portable radio.Of course, this would have been a good option to get those 3000 series buses on the roads - just give those operators portables (like road relief Operators)...but they had to go through that extensive parking lot testing. Meanwhile, SMART got new buses and without delay put them right into service - no extensive "dust" testing involved.And uniting Portland? Let's ask the good folks whose bus lines were cut how they feel united but another downtown project. Just because it crosses the river doesn't make it "united".
What about the other testing and operator training (forgetting about how a portable radio doesn't provide AVL or other info)? Remember that low-floor Gilligs are new to TriMet.And it's extra service, not road reliefs, that get portable radios.
And how many new buses did SMART get? I don't think it was 50+
Streetcar is a fucking joke Jason, and the Joke is on people that are transit dependent-LIKE YOU!
