Oh Trimet management, you wonderful devious slobs, we love how you just love to pull the wool over the eyes of your beloved public.
Before the ticket printers everyone on buses got transfers, You either got one or two hours from the end of the line.
Then the wonderful printers came into being (at the cost of several million dollars) and somehow the Trimet code got amended, nobody knew about the change in trimet code until today!
They just snuck it right through. Basically that wonderful board of directors, composed of the elites of the Portland scene, decided they would rip off riders yet again. No more time from end of line, you get the transfer from the time you get on. Too bad if the bus gets stuck, or breaks down, you, the rider lose again.
Sorry, but that is HOW THEY ROLL
