"First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win." ~Mahatma Gandhi
"Even before Tri-Met can test public reaction to its own 22 low-floor buses , the transit agency is eager to make an important decision about the future of its fleet. The Tri-Met board is almost certain to decide at its June 25 meeting to adopt a policy that all future buses will be of the low-floor variety. A transition would take a decade or more as the agency phases out its standard buses ."That was said in 1997. It's now 2012 - 15 years later. And fully 1/3rd of TriMet's bus fleet is STILL old, ancient high floor buses.
I noticed Erik did not mention the MAX A/C investment noted in the same article.
