This guy stiffed me while boarding my 45 today

Frustration - text from operator

After months of the FMLA-'Reed Group' requesting doctors notes and asking me the SAME stupid questions and phone calls, they finally approved my leave. What waste of time.
The idiots kept asking how often I was going to help him? I tild them hes 2000miles aways I dont plan to go regularly.

OPERATORS! BE AWARE!

newsflash, the district has now started a new campaign.if it can be proven that you ran a red light. or if you are convicted of running a red light, you are going to be given a written reprimand. so much for progressive discipline. grievances to follow.

BOJACK!

One of my favorite recent Trimet hires


Yes, the Starlight Parade shuttles were run


They even programmed into the Transit Tracker data
(in response to this tweet)

Also, would it really be better if TriMet didn't accept advertisements from places/events outside the district, even when a rider's TriMet fare will still get them there?

The news from Wisconsin was not all bad

Last night was a tough night for us in Wisconsin. After being outspent 8 to 1 by Scott Walker and the billionaire Koch brothers, we lost the gubernatorial recall.

But what the national media is not telling you is: I am the new Democratic Senate Majority Leader after winning an important Senate recall election by just hundreds of votes.
