Another gushy pro Portland/Trimet article

The first of its kind in the U.S., the Tilikum Crossing will reflect the city's enduring transit culture.
~~~>That one sub headline gives away the article as just another puffy piece of complicit mainstream media  attempting paint a phony picture of things. An 'enduring transit culture' can be found in NYC with 56% of residents using transit or Washington DC with 39% ridership. But Portland is ranked #28 in with only a 12% of its residents using it on THIS LIST. Hardly an 'enduring transit culture.But what they did get right in the article is how Portland and Trimet have shanghaied public transit as a social engineering tool specifically aiding and abetting the wealthiest among us and the developer class.
