TRIMET HAS NO DECENCY

Woman boards bus at 1:30 am and the SLUGS THAT RUN TRIMET say she can't buy a day ticket for the day she is riding, she has to pay twice. That means she will get a transfer good for 1 hour tomorrow.
The customer (what a laugh) paid for a day ticket but got two 1 hour tickets courtesy of the thieves that run trimet.

Trimet executive wages frozen?

Instant replay-    I DON'T THINK SO! (we already know lying comes second nature to these career blood suckers)

Latest "seen and heard on Trimet"

But not seen on TRIMET'S HOW WE ROLL BLOG!
Woah. A bus just plowed through a red light and would have hit me if I wasn't watching. Nice work.

ARE TRIMET EMPLOYEES FINALLY GETTING IT?

TRIMET HAS ALREADY LOST

Trimet's insistence on secrecy in the contract negotiations means they have something to hide.
The fact that they are fighting so hard to keep all of that from the public is tantamount to a defeat for them.
The system is rigged in their favor, so they may still 'win' in the end even though they lost in reality.
Take arbitrator GABBA'S decision. If you actually read it you would see for yourself that it was hardly a victory for Trimet. 
He ruled in their favor strictly because he felt he had too. In the text of the ruling is page after page of scalding criticism of Trimet and its union policies. Trimet and its corporate stooges in the media only use the parts of the decision they want  and leave the rest out in order to influence public opinion.
But those of us who follow this stuff, know exactly the kind of people they are and how they do business.
They are the microcosm of a government that cares nothing about the citizens or employees and functions exclusively for private interest rewarding with huge salaries the stooges that call themselves executives for following orders.

4.7 million to keep ticket machines going?

Someone is making a friggen fortune on these TVM's:

WHAT TO DO IF YOU CAN'T BUY TICKET DUE TO TVM FAILURE

This idea comes from a current TRIMET driver:

Trimet is always saying they are going green . Tell the public that if they go to a trimet ticket machine and the machine is broken , pull out a five dollar bill , stick it in the validator and validate the bill . Keep the bill with them the whole day as proof of payment . If a fare inspector stops them , they simply hand the validated five dollar bill to the inspector and tell them the machine was broken ! Plus they save the paper that never came out of the ticket machine !
