What I'm referring to is the so called 'yellow card'. For those who do not know what that is its the method that drivers are told to use to report scheduling department failures.
The reason its a total con game is that Trimet is well aware when a schedule doesn't work. Trimet has one of the best Information Technology departments in the transit industry. They have all the data for all the routes at their disposal.
Yet operators are told to 'fill out a yellow card' (on their own time of course) so as to bring the situation "to the attention of the schedulers."
It's nothing but a con game played on bus drivers. A yellow card doesn't tell them anything they don't already know. Below is an operator on his last nerve discussing a horrible schedule with a dispatcher who refers him to the 'yellow card'.
