Eight PPD Traffic Division personnel conducted a “Share the Road” mission in downtown Portland on Tuesday, August 28. During the mission they focused not only on motor vehicle violations, but also pedestrian and bicyclist violations resulting in 27 citations and 15 warnings. The area extended from Burnside Street to SW Clay Street, and from Naito Parkway to SW 14th Avenue, with a few officers focused entirely on the Transit Mall and MAX track violations.
The Ride Guide program was set up in 2007 to provide a way for administrative staff who don’t usually work with customers to do so. Especially when there are major projects that require additional staff be on the streets to answer questions and guide customers. It is limited to administrative employees because it is during working hours and the employee may be asked to perform duties that are not in the normal scope of their position. ‘Ask Me’ duty was developed to provide an opportunity for all employees, and friends and family, to help our customers on days when we need even more folks on the street to help with purchasing tickets and getting to and from large community events. We have an upcoming ‘Ask Me’ opportunity for the Race for the Cure on Sept. 15-16, if you are interested, sign-up online or by contacting Julie Monroe at . Have a question, just email us at
Pay more and get less, too bad if you are forced to use the system.
The head vampire (Mcfuher) has already forced his vampire will on his hapless employees, many of which are also sheeple.
Trimet has also employed an army of COPS and FARE INSPECTORS to make sure the SERFS comply with the KINGS (Mcfuhrer) orders.
I remember when Trimess had a compassionate management and rider friendly policies. The JUDAS KITZHABER who was elected due to organized labor has shown his real stripes. Another republican posing as a democrat. He turned his back on labor and turned his back on the citizens. The system is a fix, the citizens are played for fools. And most of the citizens have assumed the role of sheeple anyway, accepting what big brother says. It's a tragic end to a once innovative and humane transit system.
Most people in Portland Drive, they know better than use this inefficient, scary, and unreliable system.
AND THE EXECUTIVE VAMPIRES LOST NOT ONE PENNY OF THEIR SIX FIGURE INCOMES-NOT ONE PENNY
