STEVE FUNG ACTUALLY CARED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE BUS HE DROVE

This was a man that came into work an hour early so he could clean his bus properly for his work shift.

TRIMET DECIDES THAT SAFETY IS NOT THAT IMPORTANT AFTER ALL

Those of us who follow these things already knew that of course, but now we have the proof!
An insider tips me to the following:

I read your post concerning safety at the company.  One thing that you  may have not known, but the company has now embarked on hiring about 100 newbs in a 12 month period and reduced the requirement of 9 weeks training to just 6.  That means that the safety issues will be a major problem in the future

Dammit, TriMet transit tracker... you've screwed me yet again!

For Halloween this Year...

For Halloween this year, bus 1613 is dressing up as a bus from 2011's fare past.

...Or maybe just dressing up as a bus from 1990...


Joe Rose says Lane is right!

HARRY SAPPORTA MAKES A PUBLIC STATEMENT

Its Freaking unbelievable!

JC VANETTA SPEAKS WITH LANE JENSEN

JC Vannatta at his Finest | Portland Transit Lane
it is my opinion based on my research that recording audio is permissible on transit because there is NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY on the public transit system. Furthermore rulings involving police have clearly shown the JC Venatta's interpretation of the audio laws is just plain wrong.

TRIMET ENDS UP IN FEDERAL COURT DUE TO ITS ROUGE FARE INSPECTORS

She said a blond woman sitting on a bench applauded her for standing up for free speech. Nearby, a man appeared to be filming her exchange with the inspector, prompting Boltjes to tell him he couldn't do that, Bricker testified.
TriMet code does not prohibit riders from filming or taking photos at stations or on vehicles.
Visibly enraged, Bricker said the inspector prevented her from getting on the next two trains before kicking her off the transit system for a month. She had no prior record of problems on TriMet.
"It was the content of my speech that was objectionable," Bricker testified, "not the volume."

'NOT ON TRIMET PROPERTY'

One thing I love about Lane is his ability to stand up for himself in the face of authority. Not an easy thing to do.
They keep saying to him  'NOT ON TRIMET PROPERTY'.

And herein is the whole mess in four words. Who the fuck owns Trimet? Not one of the people that work there. Every single person who works at Trimet is getting paid via the tax payers, EVERY SINGLE ONE!


TRIMET property is the public's property, not "their property"

I'm so sick of riding trimet. I need to stop slacking and get my permit and license.

TRIMET BULLLYING ITS RIDERS AND STEALING THEIR MONEY!


Having exact change, you'd think could for once, not ruin my day. But no. Not even 9am it's successful.
the south bound stop at Rosa Parks refused to take my dollar coins, which it gave me. Now have to spend twice as much on Trimet 2day
