Increased mobility? Isn't this quaint?

1400 bus on the 52 today, no idea how old the bus was but this was the sticker over the door. It's been a long time since that was TriMet's mission. Or guiding plan of action.

New and Improved TriMet bus stop schedules

I wonder if TriMet will apply the same essential cost-cutting measures to MAX stations.  You know, since they have EIGHT large schedule signs for each stop, plus the Transit Tracker signs...when all they need is one three inch by three inch paper sign with the stop ID number and nothing else.

Why spend thousands of dollars having to print up new schedule signs, then paying a guy (at high wages, of course) to drive (using a TriMet fleet vehicle) to the platform to post the signs twice (or more) a year?

The check is good!

Going to wells Fargo to investigate this Trimet check !  


The big rumor circulating now is GET CASH FOR YOUR COLA REFUND because they checks may not be any good!

You think driving LIFT is easy?

It's a completely different kind of driving

Free market threat to Trimet?

Could it be true?

Would a company such as Trimet who is obsessed with Rail actually forget to put one of its lines on its new map?

(WES is missing)

It's wonderful!
