Video Log!

A million here, a million there

We're gonna cut your bus and raise your fare but at least we got this:

A broad funding package is paying for the project. The Portland Development Commission contributed $4 million in 2010, and TriMet is providing $1 million for habitat improvements as environmental mitigation credits it needs to proceed with the Portland-to-Milwaukie light-rail project.

THE QUESTION OF WILSONVILLE

Wilsonville left the TRIMET transit district on its own accord.
So the question is, WHY IS TRIMET PROVIDING WES SERVICE TO WILSONVILLE?
Willsonville should be paying for the WES service, not TRIMET employees and TriMet bus riders!

If it weren't already crystal clear where Tri-Met is coming from these days -- ripping out a perfectly good bus system and replacing it with an array of inconvenient and dangerous trains -- it's impossible to miss the message here. The Tri-Met general manager is going in front of the Portland City Club next week to speak on "Moving Forward While Cutting Back." And who is he bringing along to do some of his talking for him? A dandy dude from CH2M Hill.
Who is CH2M Hill? We'll give you a hint: they're not into bus maintenance. CH2M Hill is into real estate development and giant construction projects.
And therein lies the problem. Real estate developers want railroad tracks next to their apartment bunkers, just long enough to load in some tenants, flip the property, and move on to the next deal. They could care less how awful it is to ride the public buses and trains. They just want public money to make their lives "pencil out," and keep the lobster bisque flowing at the Arlington Club.
The future of Tri-Met is in bankruptcy. And you know what? CH2M Hill won't be there with them that day
