Earl Blumenauer on Trimet

How do we stop the Portland light rail mafia ?

Dispatch calls are on my twitter feed last 2 days

From the TriMet Drivers side

Early in your tenure as General Manager, a co-worker and brother of mine asked you about Thomas Dunn. You had no idea who he was. “I’m from Candada, you know,” was his reply. I was stunned to hear this. Eh? This story about your lack of knowledge of the transit world was truly disheartening to us all. When one of us is murdered, we ALL suffer the grief, no matter where it happens. You think like a CEO, rather than the leader of 2,000+ blue collar workers one paycheck from Tent City. This is exactly why ATU 757 was heartily against you being hired as our GM. You have no idea what it’s like to do the nuts-and-bolts jobs of transit.

TRIMET bus calls- May 2

Calls from Real Rip City twitter feed

Trimet Deke

I drive a city bus. Instead of shutting down bus service, our transit agency decided to keep us driving throughout the most dangerous of times we've known. Our safety is of little importance. They hire 20-50 people every month with replacement of veterans in mind. We're only expected to "serve" eight years or so, before management's restrictive and intensely-ridiculous edicts drive us screaming from the job.

TriMet management rarely ever fire one of their own.  They give the person who they want out the door a “Special Assignment “.

The case of Ryan Viken

Ryan had been advocating for more appropriate actions for operators regarding this corona nightmare. This has lead to certain problems with the management. I was very familiar with these types of problems when I worked there too!! Funny how the faces change but all the policies don't. If anything they just keep getting worse and worse! His case is starting to look like this case in EDMONTON CANADA

Coronavirus and TriMet’s particular horrible response to the epidemic is a goldmine of collectible Trimet tweets right now. This one is spectacular

Driving in circles

The last couple of days have been eye opening. 
I was sent home after being exposed (in close proximity)to a woman who matched the description of a recent victim of covid19 in Clackamas county.

Transit agencies gone fare free and agencies with failed management

Trimet bus drivers need to stand up for themselves

Detroit bus drivers collectively declared Tuesday morning that they weren’t going to work without safety precautions. Bus service was canceled throughout the city because of “the driver shortage,” as city officials put it.
The drivers’ union backed them up and their brief work stoppage, less than twenty-four hours, won all their demands. Fares will not be collected for the duration of the coronavirus crisis.

Pandemic claims first victim
