THE CASE OF DR JEFF GUARDALABENE

Long time writer, enthusiast, blogger, tweeter,  performer and professional transit rider Dr Jeff was cited for not having his bus pass with him today. This is the first time he has forgotten his pass since he has been riding Trimet. Unfortunately this was the day he ran into a fare inspector, who decided to give him a citation.

Caveat transfer

The all-day transfer that you buy on a bus is now literally “all day” – which on the new transfers is 2:30am. But take another look at the bottom bullet:


In other words, if your bus driver tears the entire transfer off of the book instead of using the cutter to tear it at 2:30, it indicates to a fare inspector that you may have stolen that transfer.
And here’s the catch. There are over a thousand bus operators at TriMet right now. Trying to get all of them to do something the same way is akin to herding cats

Mcfarlane hands his crony $150k

This is definitely coming out of the general fund. It's a 'study' which means some guy working at CH2MHill  for probably 30k a year puts about 2 weeks worth of work into producing a nice paper using his computer to conduct most of the research. Funny how they always are able to come up with money for the stuff they want. Nice little piece of change for Mcfarlanes crony from the city club

EVEN DR JEFF GETS HANDED THE TRIMET TREATMENT!

This is heresy! Heads should roll over this!

There is no possibility of me winning against Mcfarlane

"Plaintiffs claim is literally 2 sentences"
All you have to do is read this document from Trimet legal to see that I have no chance to win this suit against Mcfarlane. I never actually thought I would to be honest. I think I have a good case but without me plowing in thousands of my own dollars and getting a decent attorney its not going anywhere. If I had been smarter I would have realized that my small claim should not have exceeded $700 then I would have been able to drag Mcfarlane into small claims. Alas, hindsight is always 20/20 and I've already spent $200 on this I have no intention of spending any more. We have a union that hopefully is handling this for us. (See the last document) So far we seem to be on the losing side, even though some of the court rulings favor employees. I will go to this hearing, and I will ask for union assistance, but that is as far as I am willing to go with this.

WHY IS TRINET BLANK?

You'd think that with Mcfarlanes upcoming attempt to collect on past health insurance there would be some mention of it on Trinet? Not a thing there. The question is--WHY?

TRIMET GOOD GUYS

Notice the ATU red solidarity  bracelet on his left hand.

Mcfarlane turns to economic terrorism-where is the press?

I follow bus news from around the world and TRIMET has achieved another first to my knowledge.
I have never heard a story from any transit district anywhere in the world that ordered their employees to pay them back for health care they have already received.
