Max calls

The Redditor bus driver

there’s a trimet bus driver that does these super long posts about the job on reddit.
He goes by the name ‘bridgeCityBus’. The posts are rather interesting but I do find it odd how he never says anything negative about the job, which is suspicious. Furthermore the comments on his posts are pretty odd also, all this ‘thank you for being a bus driver’ I just haven’t seen this anywhere and I’ve been following this material as a hobby for 15+ years now. His responses to some of the comments are definitely not as rosy about things as his narratives are

Check it out, it’s a good read

Here’s a list of his posts, pretty popular on reddit

Trimet light rail max action control calls

The wisdom of Neal Berlin

From right to left( just like if you were reading Hebrew). STEP ONE. The two ladies:I am not sure I want to take the step into management. What do you have to loose? Your soul?
STEP TWO. Now that I am in management, I must figure a way the higher ups will notice me, then promote me. I got it! Institute a daily sock inspection ( note this actually done by TriMet)!
STEP THREE. What now? I ask myself more than once a day. I come to work everyday and make sure no one finds out I really do nothing. That does take a lot of work! I do eat lunch, that counts for something.
STEP FOUR. Now that I am this high up on the management ladder, the options for me are few. Admit this quest was a mistake, and make amends with the underlings I have offended? Retreat to a easier option, carry on and and ask for forgiveness in the next life. Still mulling the options. The young man heading upward, is sophomoric enough to proceed. Just waiting for grey hair to give him the appearance of a sage. So it goes... Two Bells.

Darla Sturdy gets an accident review committee

Unfortunately the Trimet General Manager gets control over who sits on it. That’s not good.

By Henry Beasley
