Speaking of little white TriMet lies

Line 15-Belmont does not have frequent service east of 92nd and Stark, going by technicalities. As it is, on Sunday service between 92nd and Stark and Gateway TC runs every 36-40 minutes. That section has the same frequency as non-frequent line 20.

Your Honor, May I Present Exhibit A?

If you look at the tippy top right of this picture, you will see that TriMet already has its new route map. As you can see, line 87 is right below line 22 on NE 102nd Avenue, which is one of the service changes of Fall 2012. Obviously TriMet has its new system map out; they just don't want to show us. Why not, TriMet?

WHY TRIMET DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU!

The power elite have successfully created conditions where most every single person in the workforce today can be replaced by people "happy to have any job"

lots of drivers suffered heat stroke this weekend i hope all is doing better but im a little outraged why trimet and our union weren't out handing water out to drivers. i did in the past for our union when it would get above 90 i asked jon to do a water patrol driving our union van handing out water to members.what wasn't it done this weekend?this is unacceptable in my book.

How to fix the Washington Park Shuttle

It strikes me as weird that the 63 and Washington Park Shuttle (also known as the 83) still co-exist. Now that the Washington Park Loop has a number and is officially a bus line (an official sign that TriMet has clearly stopped giving a shit about it) the stupidity of it all is just obvious. Almost every sign is served by both buses with some different routing in the middle. Just compare the two on the system map. It's suffocatingly useless.

I guess you could argue that having the two together provides frequency, and I suppose that could be true, except for a few things. 1) Line 63 runs every 40 minutes midday while line 83 runs every 20 minutes, and most of the time the 63 leaves the Oregon Zoo anywhere between two and five minutes after the 83.  Not useful, now is it?

TRIMET NOT GIVING OUT WATER ANYMORE?

Trimet in the past always had a good supply of bottled water for drivers during heat waves. But not anymore I hear.
WOW-THEY REALLY DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THEIR DRIVERS ANYMORE

BUS BANGERS

“Hellloooo, people. We’re stopped indefinitely. There are signal problems at Gateway and trains are backed up all the way to Orenco.”
Great. We’re stuck at the Sunset Transit Center with seven miles of Max cars stopped ahead of us. As the driver suggests over the P.A., “You may want to take the 20 bus into downtown,” I’m already trotting down the platform.
About half the trainload is right with me. The 20 Burnside to Gresham arrives like a prompt ambulance and we cram into it.

Screw up

Start your countdown- Washington County spelled Driss's last name wrong & also switched his 1st and last names, so every news outlet covering the crash has it wrong. KATU also identified him as female. How long do you think it's going to take for one of the "TriMet Girls" to fix that?
