FED'S NOW HAVE AUTHORITY OVER TRIMET

Which opens up a whole new can of worms to Trimet managers. See a problem that the Trimet management ignores, well NOW YOU CAN TAKE YOUR COMPLAINT DIRECTLY TO THE FEDS!

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act or MAP-21, which went into effect Oct. 1, gave the Federal Transit Administration this new authority to oversee transit systems and to set national policy for transit safety. These transit systems have not been regulated by the federal government since 1964. 

 So now you can take any safety related complaint to the FTA

That could be good or bad, depending on who has been appointed to head the FTA. I'm looking forward to studying your links here, thanks Al.

Given our piss poor management I think its a good thing, and I hate the FED's.

Anything that reduces Trimet management's power is a good thing IMO
