Now keep on the pressure - why is TriMet operating 23 year old buses that have horrible maintenance and reliability records, when other transit agencies routinely replace their buses, following federal guidelines, at 12-15 years of age?
Why does TriMet routinely cut bus service, while favoring MAX riders?
Why is TriMet continuing to run a horrendously unpopular and expensive commuter rail line at $17/boarding ride, while cutting "expensive" $3/boarding ride buses?
Why is TriMet spending millions on building a new headquarters, and not using that money to enhance service?
Why does TriMet employ a Capital Projects department of over 100; and a massive I.T. staff including nearly 100 software engineers and programmers - for what?
Why does TriMet employ a massive marketing department; yet I have not seen a single ad (television, radio, newspaper, print, billboard, etc.) advertising a bus route?
Why do TriMet drivers routinely get admitted to the hospital for carbon monoxide poisoning from their 23 year old buses? What about the safety of both the driver (and carbon monoxide poisioning does cause drowsiness to start) and the riders on board?
Shall I continue?
