Mr Steve Fung-June 2011

One of the top activists at Trimet, in the 5 years he was here he made quite an impact!

DIRECTOR STOVALL IS OBVIOUSLY NOT HAPPY WITH THE ANSWER GIVEN BY TRIMET STAFF

This is a man that does financial planning as a career, watch his face at the conclusion of the answer:

NOBODY QUESTIONS THE "NO BID" CONTRACT


Nobody asked even one question!

OPAL SUPPORTED THE 'UNRESTRICTED FUND BALANCE' RESOLUTION

I could not understand a word Mcfarlane said but if OPAL supports it then it must be ok

TRIMET WANTS TO SPEND $1 MILLION ON 'BENEFITS CONSULTING'


See at TRIMET they can only administer benefits, they can't get their own information for some reason

It feels like relying on TriMet to get to work is the riskiest career decision I've ever made.

Cameron Johnson at todays board meeting


This is NOT good service


Decent "how we roll' post about an artist sketching on Trimet


Interview with Lane Jensen after the Trimet board meeting


We will never see the videos of any sensational Trimet incident

Unlike most transit districts who release film of sensational events immediately, we here in the State of Oregon are stuck with a transit district obsessed with secrecy.

It is an interesting construction project with excellent on line coverage

 (just shows ya how much Trimet can do when it wants to)

Breaking news Lane Jensen at Board meeting in his Trimet costume

LANE JENSEN is sitting waiting for the board of 'directors' meeting to start.

Streetcar Rush hour service is once every 40 minutes?

That is pathetic

MAX BULLDOZING ITS WAY SOUTH

“Two times in the past, they had a vote on putting in the light rail. And each time they changed the route and stuff,” said Moore. “They didn't let the people vote on it. They just planned this thing.”

In general, people seem upset at the general lack of interest shown by authorities in the concern of the public. Trees are getting bulldozed where they might be protected, and the authorities don't seem as interested as they ought to be.

“I think people do feel frustrated. We are voicing, we're trying to work within the legal framework that's been established, and when those laws and channels get thwarted and gone past, they start to get frustrated,” said Holly Losli, a mother and long-time resident of Clackamas County. “They subscribe to this system, and the very people that are supposed to be representing it aren't following it.”

REALLY MAKES YOU WANNA USE MASS TRANSIT

Vanhagen was able to escape the hands of his oppressors and within a few minutes he had stabbed the bus driver, Leonard James once in the stomach, and a fellow passenger Richard Dickson Jr. five times in the chest, back and leg. Andrew Crombie was bitten on the shoulder during the fight and Thompson received five stab wounds to the back and one to the arm; one of which punctured his lung.

Stabbing on TriMet leads to self protection issues

Boycott of my blog by union members made zero difference in readership

This blog is a HOBBY, of material that is not just mine but many  others have contributed to it throughout the years. The people reading my blog material were never Trimet employees or ATU union members.
