FOR SOMEONE WHO IS SO UNPOPULAR HE ALWAYS GETS LOTS OF VIEWS

Just look at this face! How could you not like Lane?

Who am I talking about, yes its LANE JENSON for real!
I'm going through all the top posts for last year and every single one of Lanes is in the top posts list!
It is kinda funny, actually its unbelievable. 
You have to say one thing about Lane, and the thing I like about him, he is one eccentric dude!

SOMEBODY SHOW ME-WHERE IS THE BUDGET DEFICIT?

I must be doing something or not understanding something with this chart:
Most recent Trimet figures from Trimet dashboard
When I read the chart I see a total of $348.9 million in ACTUAL revenue.
And furthermore I see the budget called for  revenues  of $329.2 million.
I see they have a surplus of $10.7 million dollars.

What am I doing wrong?


ATTENTION ATU 757


The TRIMET propaganda machine is in FULL SWING
My advice is get your own electronic list going immediately!

CLASSIC 2012 BUS DISPATCH

RANTINGS OF A FORMER TRIMET BUS DRIVER: BUS DRIVER MAKES COMPLAINT AGAINST MAX DRIVER

Latest "seen and heard on Trimet"

But not seen on TRIMET'S HOW WE ROLL BLOG!
Line 88 operator/1708 just got the bird from a pedestrian for . . . well, just driving the bus! (Really!)
TRIMET SCANNER TWEETS HERE!

GREAT MOMENTS FROM 2012

This woman speaker at the Trimet service cut hearings said it all, she spoke with true heart  to bureaucrats who just don't care. Watch how the paid moderator interrupts her and silences her after she goes slightly over the 'allotted time'. These hearings mean nothing to the power brokers, and if not for people like me would be lost in history. At least we have a record of this event.

HERO'S OF 2012-CAMERON JOHNSON

Nobody tried harder than Cameron to get through to the sock puppets. Alas Cameron also has found out that he was addressing sock puppets, people without power. He has earned tremendous respect for all his efforts even though they went for naught. 

GREAT EVENTS OF 2012-OPAL

OPAL members tried valiantly to get some reasonableness out of the sock puppets. Alas they were addressing sock puppets and not real thinking people able to exercise any power

Another MAX fail this morning

Did you know that Trimet has its own parking meters?

They sure do, listen HERE!

LANE JENSEN HAS ACHIEVED NOTORIETY AT TRIMET

I just got a report from Lane that when he called customer service on the phone the PERSON ANSWERING THE PHONE KNEW WHO HE AS AND REFUSED TO TAKE A COMPLAINT saying 'they were aware of the situation and nothing can be done"

The amazing part is that is was the CLERK ON THE PHONE that gave him that answer, not an actual customer service rep.

WOW LANE-you have achieved notoriety at all levels of Trimet.

What's with all the excitement around uniforms

It should be obvious to many that some Trimet bus drivers have FREAKED OUT that someone besides them is wearing a Trimet costume!

Its odd because not one person in the public has even noticed any of this, nor have they noticed anyone wearing Trimet uniforms that was not an employee of Trimet.

The fact of the matter is that nobody gives a damn, except a few  bus drivers that seem to have some sort of weird attachment to their uniforms.

I hated that uniform, I hated wearing it and making myself  a walking billboard for Trimet. I tried to replace every item in the uniform issue with my own 'similar' but comfortable item.

I'm glad that some Trimet drivers are 'proud' of that uniform, but the level of attachment to a piece of clothing is downright bizarre in my opinion

Mad man on the 57

Turns out he wasn't a mad man! HERE!
