Heroes Work Here," a sign in front of Center Garage tells anyone who ventures through the front doors. Are we? It doesn't feel like it. We're simply pawns in a much bigger game than our work is given credit for. https://t.co/wq6R8xSi6z— Al M (@AlYourPalster) June 21, 2020

According to the lawsuit, because TriMet is a public body, the decision to suspend cash payments should have been made in public. Instead, Kessler’s lawsuit states, the transit agency decided to stop receiving cash at a private meeting of agency officials. https://t.co/cbHMtUShb3— Al M (@AlYourPalster) June 17, 2020

I watched the meeting where these career technocrats talked about carefully wording the measure to maximize its effectiveness on an ignorant public So you never know.
Obviously it helps no one but the technocrats, engineers, planners, and construction contractors. Alas These professional liars are Highly skilled at fooling the public
More on the scammers that call themselves “leaders”

I work in public transit.— Thomas Palmer (@c_corax77) June 5, 2020
Given what I’ve seen happen at protests, both here in Portland,and around the country, I cannot depend on a police response to a situation aboard my vehicle to be forthright and respectful.
And that shakes me.
I know how many times we ask for help.

Public transit agencies need to plan for severe near-term budget crunches . Unfortunately, several of them are instead investing large sums in inflexible expansion plans for a transit mode that was rarely well-considered to begin with: light rail. #Trimet https://t.co/5VA6v1b7Nx— Al M (@AlYourPalster) May 17, 2020

Transit workers should be near the top of the list for personal protective equipment like face masks and hand sanitizers. If a city can’t provide the proper PPE for transit workers, it’s not ready to reopen. Transit workers should receive priority testing https://t.co/bXzHhKNIPd— Al M (@AlYourPalster) May 10, 2020

A @trimet bus driver put up plastic sheet for protection during COVID-19, but was asked by the agency to take it down. They feel there are not enough safety precautions, but TriMet’s taken several steps inc. offering masks for all operators.— Brenna Kelly (@BrennaKellyNews) April 16, 2020
