Some of the most outrageous and ridiculous false propaganda I have ever read about Trimet
In Portland, Ore., public transportation is a huge part of the urban life, with 80 percent of adults (the figure is actually 12% use public transportation) in the area riding TriMet, which runs Portland’s transit system, according to TriMet figures.
Among their riders, 84 percent are “choice” riders, meaning they choose public transit over such transportation as driving their own cars.
What Portland offers its 603,000 residents — light rail, commuter rail, streetcars and buses — isn’t that different from systems in Baltimore.
What makes Portland’s system so effective is its seamlessness and accessibility, (haha...too funny) says Katherine Hunter-Zaworski, a civil and construction engineering professor at Oregon State University.(who the hell is that?)
