Even some C-Tran leaders have expressed surprise at how the fast-tracked series of events played out.
"I didn't even know (C-Tran Executive Director Jeff Hamm) was going to sign it," said C-Tran board chairman Bill Ganley, a Battle Ground City Council member.
"This went a lot faster than I thought it was going to go," he added.
The deal spelled out how C-Tran and TriMet would operate light rail in Vancouver as part of the CRC. It was largely hammered out during a two-week span in September, when C-Tran resumed work on the Interstate 5 Bridge replacement at the direction of its board.
C-Tran is in the process of releasing hundreds of emails and other documents related to the contract, TriMet and the CRC. The disclosures come in response to public records requests by state Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, and the Freedom Foundation, an Olympia-based policy group.
Rivers said she is still sifting through volumes of records, hoping to shed light on behind-the-scenes discussions that preceded the vote
