Well I'm not a high priced transit consultant nor a high paid Trimet executive but I would bet the reason that Trimet's light rail has become so unreliable is the ORANGE LINE!
Why do I say that? Cause I bet Trimet has all their personnel working on that which is taking away from the needs of the current system.
This is an old story for Trimet, keep building, keep ignoring what you already got.
