Take a ride on the Willamette Shore Trolly

TROLLEY RIDERS HAVE A WELL APPOINTED PLATFORM AT EACH STOP, WITH SHELTERS, LIGHTING, LANDSCAPING, BENCHES, SCHEDULES AND MORE. BUS RIDERS ONLY HAVE A MINIMAL SHELTER AT JUST ONE IN EIGHT SHOPS, AND EXTREMELY FEW BUS STOPS HAVE TRANSIT TRACKER SIGNS OR OTHER AMENITIES. IT ISN'T TRUE?

WHY ARE YOU ONCE AGAIN SCREWING THE BUS RIDERS, AND GIVING TROLLEY RIDERS SPECIAL TREATMENT?

Jesus Christ is this necessary Max?

It's "Shore" and not "Shores"

Also, a "Bus River Production"?

I will say it was a nice video. But is that wig wag original? If so, wouldn't it be a SP Red Electric wig wag?

This is one of the few things our local governments have done right. This line should have been run over the Sellwood Bridge and into Milwaukie instead of their gazillion dollar max train. The west end of the Sellwood Bridge was not the big problem they made it out to be either. Another example of Kafoury Klan Korruption.

Neither of you can leave Erik alone for any reason at all, can you?

Those are Erik's words. I only changed the word "max" to "trolley"; otherwise it's all him.

I don't understand how a rail fan is constantly critical of rail; but that's Erik. So I thought it would be interesting to post Erik's own (anti-rail) words in response to his own (pro-rail) post.

I wasn't critical of Erik. I almost always agree with him. It's too bad our "planners" don't have hands on construction knowledge, like Erik does. It would make them a lot less susceptible to scammers, who look at government projects as a big cash machine. In my mind, we could have solved all of the South Portland transit problems for about one-fifth of what it is costing us, the way the bureaucrats are doing it.
