Keeping a watchful eye on Portland's 'world famous' transit system Trimet! (known to the locals as the Trimess)
That's a hella clear picture!
Really clear, the picture that is. Who was you texting/blogging that was so important that you did not directly go to the operator and say your got hurt??????HB
OK so I watched this several times at no time did anyone on the bus react like there was a sudden severe stop on the bus. There is a girl reading a book she never even looked up from her book. I saw not one person jerk forward violently on the bus I saw no reaction by any other passenger that showed any concern at all. Yes you moved a little but even you gave no indication that you were injured at all you just kept right on texting. There were open seats on the bus maybe you need to be sitting and texting if you cant stand and do it. You trying to file a claim seems to me to be a little shady at the minimum Lane. This is part of the reason why fares go up people trying to make a buck when they are not seriously injured. In the video of you at the board meeting you were leaning on both elbows and waving your arms around just fine. I am not saying that you might not have hit your shoulder a little or something but trying to make a claim against trimet for that incident is shameful.
Obviously he's not hurt but how they handled his claim is disgraceful
That is possible AL. Im not sure what they did or didnt do correctly but why waste the time with what basically amounts to a fraudulant claim. What if they had just paid up? We have enough problems at trimet without wasteful time being spent on this kind of thing is my only point.
They didn't even investigate it Cris. Although it looks like a light bump who knows what it could be?Trimet didn't take any of it seriously which is just plain wrong.
As We all know when you rock the boat there are consequences. If you alienate yourself from an organization which knowingly or not Lane did you are crazy to think that they are going to treat you fairly. Is it right no it is not but Lane made his bed and now he has to lay in it. Who knows had he done his videotaping in a more professional manner and not been such a pain in the ass he might have gotten hired and had a good job. Something to think about. Oh and as far as his TRIMET media badge it does give the average person the idea that he is affiliated with trimet. So if you bloggers are so avid that you arent affiliated with trimet or the ATU why put trimets name on your little laminated "badges?"
