Trimet-come on, get with the program

Many cities are plagued by bus bunching at peak hours: one bus stops frequently to pick up and drop off passengers, slowing its progress. The bus behind it, finding stops cleared, goes increasingly fast, until the two meet.
It’s not unusual for three or four buses to collect this way, frustrating riders who have to wait increasingly long intervals for a bunch of buses to arrive all at once.
The traditional solution—for the second or third bus to pull over and idle at the curb for several minutes—frustrates riders even more.
Emerging technology may offer a better solution.

The 6 versions of Thursday's Line 48 detour

Sent at 8:40 AM (does not say which Elam Young Pkwy intersection; the street follows a "U" path and intersects Cornell twice):
Line 48 Westbound: regular route to Cornell and Elam Young prky, left Elam Youn parkway, right 53rd, right Baseline, to 10th & regular route reverse Eastbound until further notice.

Sent at 8:50 AM (detour shortened):
UPDATE Line 48 Westbound: regular route to Cornell and Elam Young prky, left Elam Youn parkway, right 53rd, right Baseline, right 28th into 25th, left Cornell & Regular route reverse Eastbound until further notice.

Rewritten for the pubic at 9:20 AM (but based on the old detour):
Due to accident, no service to stops between NE Cornell at Elam Young and SE Baseline St at 10th.

Rewritten for the public at 10:05 AM (corrected 45 minutes later):
Due to accident, no service to stops on Cornell between Elam Young and 25th.

Sent at 10:15 AM (now indicates which Elam Young intersection, but says to turn right onto 53rd which is impossible from that direction):
UPDATE Line 48 Westbound: regular route to Cornell and Elam Young prky east, left Elam Youn parkway east, right 53rd, right Baseline, right 28th into 25th, left Cornell & Regular route reverse Eastbound until further notice.
