HAPPY BUS DRIVER APPRECIATION DAY-from Trimet management


OREGON GETS C- FOR ETHICS

(Trimet gets a D as far as I am concerned)

ELLEN FOX-update

 This is not some kind of joke by the way, I have commented on NUMEROUS occasions how TriMet management endangers the riding public by having their operators get behind the wheel after forcing them to attend abusive  meetings. IT IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM INDEED!

OCCUPY TRIMET

Over the weekend, I received a Facebook invite to the next big Occupy event in Portland. It's called Occupy TriMet.

I'll be going to cover it as a transportation story.

Hopefully, I'll be able to avoid an unfortunate misspelling such the one on the event's Facebook page: “With fair hikes and cuts to service at TriMet looming on the horizon, Occupy Portland joins Occupy Boston's call for a national day of action on April 4th in defense of public transit.”

ANOTHER BUS DRIVER BEATEN


Still, Johnson wondered how SEPTA bus drivers, who are told to give service with a smile, can continue to do so under such conditions.
