TriMet set to develop electronic fare implementation

TriMet Resolution 12-09-77 Authorizing a Contract with CH2MHill, Inc. for Electronic Fare Collection Implementation Technical Services

What's happening with the Barbur Blvd TC project

TriMet Resolution 12-09-78 Authorizing an Increased Change Order Allowance to the Contract with I&E Construction, Inc. for the Barbur Bulevard Transit Center Stormwater Retrofit Project

"To date, in each geographic phase I&E Construction has encountered areas of conflict between the engineering design documents, unforeseen existing underground components of existing systems, and unforeseen soil conditions."

"ODOT and BES have agreed to pay the increased cost to complete the Project."

Bottom line: You really don't know what's in something until you open it up.

CONGRATULATIONS STEVE!

BALTIMORE — Transit officials say a bus jumped a curb at a Baltimore bus stop and crashed into a shelter, sending seven to area hospitals.
Maryland Transit Administration police say the accident occurred about 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Mondawmin Transit Center. Transit officials say four were taken to Sinai Hospital, two to Bon Secors Hospital and one to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. All of the injuries were believed to be non-threatening.
MTA police say the driver, who has been with the MTA since 1997, would be tested for drugs and alcohol, which is standard procedure following an accident.

Trimet bus drivers under extreme pressure

From a driver:

my last trip was insane too..i had to listen to blood curdling screams from a kid from btc to hillsboro
then i had the dude hitting on all the women on the bus including me..i had to tell him to go sit down i was trying to drive..annoying as hell

 these stupid drivers are still not tearing the day tickets in the right place...i had to fix like 5 tickets yesterday..some say they got it from a 57 and 52

GOVERNMENT AUTHORITARIANS LOOKING FOR WAY TO UNDO CLACKAMAS VOTE

The county analysis also argues that the measure could be ruled unconstitutional. Researchers argued that it goes beyond normal legislation and intrudes on the general administrative functions of county government. This issue could open up the measure to a court challenge
KATU HERE

Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.

Milestone marked by new apps page on trimet.org

There seems to be literally dozens of rider reports coming onto twitter about buses that have been approaching to their stop and then just DISAPPEAR! The trackers show countdowns but then the buses never show up and the trackers bounce back up to 30 mins or whatever. Has anybody developed an app that can smoke out the SECRET INVISIBLE BUSES of Trimet? Somebody needs to get on this right away.

The Truths Behind Dispatch

Guest editorial


Recently, I lost my cellular device on a linetrain 12 out of Powell. I happened
to see a "white shirt" aka Road Supervisor down the road, and flagged him down.
We located the device, and returned the the rightfully owner, myself.
White Shirt was good enough to ask where I was headed, upon informing him, I
found I needed to do double time to catch the last 77 to get to my hotel.
