NY's MTA BRINGS BACK THE OLDIES

MTA offers bus rides to 1940s, '50s,'60s
Ck out the associated links with that story.
All kinds of inside info, don't see much of that around here.

SHELLY LOMAX TALKS ABOUT RELIABILITY

She was very cordial to me, which somewhat surprised me. Mary won't say hi anymore, probably because of that Trimet scanner picture. Maybe we will change it soon ok Mary?

Apparently this ticket machine never works

This machine at Milikan has allegedly never worked for 24 consecutive hours.

OK I'll say something nice about Trimet

They got agency of the year from the association of minority contractors. I guess that's good right?

Neil Mcfarlane reminds me of Senator Joseph McCarthy

His blackballing of union workers is similar to McCarthy blackballing of  'communists'. (which of course never existed!)

Latest "seen and heard on Trimet"

But not seen on TRIMET'S HOW WE ROLL BLOG!
It's been 10 days now since the incident, and still the Claims Dept. refuses to respond. You owe me for my ruined clothes!

LANE COUNTY TRANSIT RECORDING AUDIO FOR 10 YEARS

Imagine if TRIMET had this sort of transparency

"Given the history of Metra, I think we want to make everything clear . . . give the board oversight and control," Mr. O'Halloran said. "My goal is to make this agency as transparent as possible."
Under current policy, the executive director informs the board of whom he's hired and what compensation and other perks they're receiving. That means the board "really has no input," Mr. O'Halloran said.
Under the new proposal, the board would review all proposed personnel decisions first, voting on them in a package at each monthly board meeting, Mr. O'Halloran said. "Everything" will be put on the Internet, as has been the case in Orland Park, where he is a village trustee, Mr. O'Halloran said.

MULTI MILLIONAIRE AND TRIMET BOARD MEMBER SWEITZER TO MAKE MORE MILLIONS

It sure is reassuring to know that we have people like her directing our transit agency. Ah the rich get richer and everybody else can die I guess.
