Mcfarlane is wrong

He asserts that there have been no significant changes to the west side service area.
That statement is ridiculous, most of the bus service cuts have been on the west side
(see comments)

If the angle he was going for is "We haven't invested in westside service since MAX", that's certainly true.

But west side has most definitely had significant negative changes. Here's the oldest system map I could find: http://planetolog.com/map-metro.php?city=PDX&id=1 from 2008, compare that to the current map. http://trimet.org/maps/trimetsystem.htm - a lot less service overall, fewer east-west options, more service has become rush hour only (1, 51, 59, Leahy Rd, etc), and a lot of these areas no longer have weekend service.

I think the argument is that there hasn't been an overall review of service; that the cuts were just adjustments of what was already there.

But what's meant by "fewer east-west options"? And Lahey Road service has always been rush hour only.
