YOUTUBE MAKES ME WATCH A STUPID MOVIE

Because things that have been posted for years are all of  a sudden getting busted for copyright infringement. I hate YouTube and never use it as my primary host anymore.

Mcfarlane makes a joke to the sock puppets

He is explaining the crash in the tunnel to the puppets, they just have a gay old time Neil and his merry band of sock puppets. Laughing away at all the events that screw up peoples lives.

Haha!

Kidding of course

BOARD OF SOCK PUPPETS BRIEFING

Brought to you from the efforts of Jason Mchuff who gets ZERO for covering these Trimet meetings. He even asked for a pass from Trimet management for doing their job for them but they ignored him, which is what they do

Watch the sock puppets here!

Seems awfully cheap for the amount of damage:

TRIMET BUS FORCES LIFT BUS TO BACK UP


It is possible to deal with budget issues WITHOUT cutting services

Not at Trimet however, where a dysfunctional union combined with an arrogant management along with its bloated bureaucracy makes everybody miserable. (everybody that uses the service and works providing the service that is)

PORTLAND TRANSPORT EXAMINES THE 'BUS BRIDGES'

A bus bridge consists of a fleet of busses transporting passengers between two out-of-service segments on the line. Nobody likes it--it is inconvenient for rail passengers, who have their trip times lengthened considerably (but certainly preferable to being stuck). It is inconvenient for bus passengers, who often see runs cancelled due to the need to service the bus bridge, and it is expensive for TriMet, who may have to pay operators overtime due to the unplanned additional service need, as well as pay for lots of unplanned deadheading.
