TRANSIT STRIKE SHUTS DOWN CITY-ARBITRATION URGED

WE NEED THIS TO HAPPEN IN PORTLAND!

The Toronto Transit Commission board will be dissolved Monday and a new board will be set up in its place, according to current chair Karen Stintz.
Stintz said Friday that was seen as the best way to get a new board up and running quickly.
“We felt the cleanest thing to do was dissolve the entire commission,” she said. “My concern was new members wouldn’t get on until June and that wouldn’t give the TTC the stability it needs.”

Hi Al,
I’m not going to get too detailed but thought you’d be interested to know..
 Trimet has scheduled and asked for public opinion and input through a series of town hall type meetings regarding “proposed” fare increases, one-way fares and elimination of the free rail zone.
This is simply a ploy by management to show fake concern towards the ridership they service. In a recent meeting, the field equipment group (fare techs), was told that as of sept. 1 2012 there definitely WOULD be fare increases AND the new one-way ticket.
The department has since ALREADY begun to take steps necessary for these changes and I can only laugh when I read or hear about how Trimet cares about the public and how they value their opinions.

REMEMBER WHAT SHE DID?
