Trimet has been operating separate and unequal transit systems. One for the 'choice' riders with the accoutrements of its light rail /wes services. And another system for its primarily impoverished citizens who wouldn't be able to get around without the bus service.
I think OPAL should look very closely into using courts against Trimet since using reason with TRIMET is a fruitless occupation.
