More Trimet hype destroyed

All the never ending false propaganda pumped out by Trimet is just plain false. 
6% of Portland area citizens commute via Trimet. 
At least its better than LA.

That counts the Vancouver (and probably other) area which is outside of TriMet's jurisdiction.

Ys it's all Vancouvers fault.

How come I missed that?

Under your argument, Jason McHuff, Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue shouldn't be counted together because it has THREE different transit agencies just in those three cities. And if you counted the entire metropolitan statistical area, you would have three other transit agencies.

Same with New York/New Jersey, there are multiple agencies.

Same with Chicago.

Same with Los Angeles/Long Beach/Santa Ana.

Your argument is absolutely false. It is comparing MSAs which are used by the Census Bureau and numerous statisticians. They don't give a rat's ass about transit district boundaries.

I was simply pointing out the fact that the figure is for more than just the City of Portland or even the TriMet district. I made no mention about the comparison to the other areas.
