Really, really old TriMet map

Seen inside a building in downtown Portland, possibly The Westshore.  Picture is blurry as it is a ways from the outside door in a secure building.  Note the sector symbols.

Rail inspector deals with 2 homeless men on MAX

Seems like this inspector handled this situation very well

Google Earth a little outdated...

I'm not sure what's worse - that Google Earth still shows the 12 continuing south of Tigard, or the very old 45 routing via Johnson Street and Grant Avenue (which hasn't existed in, what, three, four years, if not longer?)

What's inside the bus stop signs

Bus drivers under extreme pressure

You can hear in this drivers voice his complete exhaustion as he tries to deal with packed loads of unhappy people

TRIMET ONLY CARES ABOUT THIS-NOT ABOUT KEEPING SERVICE GOING

Since Mcfarlane has taken over this place has turned into a total disaster. Why is the board of sock puppets so blind? Even a sock puppet should be able to recognize failure!

One CL Line streetcar behind another

Taken October 5th at 8:05 PM, on NW 11th approaching the Marshall platform during the time of the Streetcar Mobile Music Fest.  The streetcar ahead was at the platform, and during the time, another streetcar went behind down Northrup.

The festival was causing delays with bands and gear loading and then unloading near the Rose Quarter, crowded streetcars and, at OMSI, a storyteller on the platform that created a distraction resulting in the forward streetcar shown not leaving on time.  It was shortlined and sent directly back over the bridge while my car continued down 11th as normal.

LANE JENSEN RESPONDS TO ATU ALERT ABOUT HIM

I’m not out to get drivers in trouble, that is not my goal in this blog. My goal is to tell the untold story with Transit, where they excel, where they need improvement and the like. I focus on how the story affects people, how it affects the community, and how it affects the future. Drivers are the front line for TriMet. I know they put up with a lot. My heart goes out to Leonard and his family, I pray he has a speedy recovery. How is a video camera causing so much hate and discontent? We are always told by customer service to voice our opinion. You see it on the buses and trains daily. This is how I voice my concern to TriMet. Videos are fact, hearsay is not.
Mr. Dan Martin, I will continue to do what I am doing because I am not violating any rules whatsoever. I formally request that you issue an written, public apology to both drivers and the public for the lie that you have spread about me. Thank you
