The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases

I've never had a problem with Trimet from my home in NW Portland, ever.
There are some well-run TriMet services - when I lived in Beaverton I never had a problem with the 50s, the 67 or the 62. I never had a problem with the 92. Nor the 54 or 56. And the only problems I had with the 57 were mechanical problems, not schedule problems.So, Al, I have to agree with you. If I had no experience with TriMet aside from the pre-2000 bus routes in Beaverton, I would probably agree TriMet was a good operation. And in fact I did, which is why I chose to use it even though I didn't have to. At the time I thought Westside Light Rail was a great project and heavily supported - and used - it.Now that I live in Tigard, I can't say the same. Never mind that we are all part of the same transit district, pay the same taxes, and one of the benefits of having a common TriMet transit district (according to its largest cheerleaders) is that it is one common system. So generally one should expect identical service quality whether you live in Forest Grove or Forest Heights, Sherwood or Sellwood, Troutdale or Tigard.Unfortunately, that isn't the case.Maybe there's something about Merlo...maybe it could actually be spun off into a Washington County transit agency quite efficiently and quite well. Which would then benefit Tigard as we are part of Washington County. Or maybe TriMet has something against Tigard. I don't know.
I agree completely, my knowledge of TRIMET is way beyond my little downtown neighborhood, so i know the real trimet
