Unaccountable Trimet technocracy marches on

Thursday, June 11, 2020

Bias crime

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Would people actually vote yes to build more light rail?

I can’t imagine it would be possible, especially in today’s economic environment. Yet the old saying “never underestimate the stupidity of the American people” comes to mind. And we see this playing out in our politics more clearly today than ever.

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”

Earl Blumenauer on Trimet

How do we stop the Portland light rail mafia ?

Dispatch calls are on my twitter feed last 2 days

From the TriMet Drivers side

Early in your tenure as General Manager, a co-worker and brother of mine asked you about Thomas Dunn. You had no idea who he was. “I’m from Candada, you know,” was his reply. I was stunned to hear this. Eh? This story about your lack of knowledge of the transit world was truly disheartening to us all. When one of us is murdered, we ALL suffer the grief, no matter where it happens. You think like a CEO, rather than the leader of 2,000+ blue collar workers one paycheck from Tent City. This is exactly why ATU 757 was heartily against you being hired as our GM. You have no idea what it’s like to do the nuts-and-bolts jobs of transit.

Calls from Real Rip City twitter feed

Trimet Deke

I drive a city bus. Instead of shutting down bus service, our transit agency decided to keep us driving throughout the most dangerous of times we've known. Our safety is of little importance. They hire 20-50 people every month with replacement of veterans in mind. We're only expected to "serve" eight years or so, before management's restrictive and intensely-ridiculous edicts drive us screaming from the job.

TriMet management rarely ever fire one of their own.  They give the person who they want out the door a “Special Assignment “.

Thursday, April 23, 2020

The case of Ryan Viken

Ryan had been advocating for more appropriate actions for operators regarding this corona nightmare. This has lead to certain problems with the management. I was very familiar with these types of problems when I worked there too!! Funny how the faces change but all the policies don't. If anything they just keep getting worse and worse! His case is starting to look like this case in EDMONTON CANADA
