CALLS BY ME AND PDX SCANNER
People may be "getting away" with not paying fares but do they know this information is being stored by the deep state?
"They" know where you are and they will be coming for you, welcome to dystopia.
We are living in dystopia, in a world that is dominated by technology and disconnect, alienation, loneliness, and dysfunction
This is very long but It got quite good towards the end of this discussion

Metro won't raise fares following public pushback https://t.co/3Owr0DxD5E via @YouTube— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 25, 2022
their fare is $1.75 and due to "overwhelming backlash" they will not raise fares
HEAR THAT #TRIMET GHOULS?
THEIR FARE IS $1.75!
The way this man handled Eli with a cool head, accurate facts, personable manner, zero drama over the camera, is to be commended. Why can't TriMet find more people like him.
And here we have a PROFESSIONAL TriMet fare inspector that handles his position the way it’s supposed to be done.— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 24, 2022
-and this is common at TriMet, some people are very professional at their job others not so much pic.twitter.com/TK0kf0AuBQ
#trimet is a total disgrace right now violating all constitutional rights. All public officials can be video taped in the performance of their “official” duties— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 24, 2022
Here’s some poorly trained “supervisors” telling Eli to contact ROBERTA ALSTDADT! pic.twitter.com/dIbFDkZq6X
Damn shame that the death cult we live in provides no place for the dispossessed to hangout and get cleaned up. Public transportation is the last refuge of the disposable human beings our society sends to the ditch ☠️🇺🇸☠️ pic.twitter.com/BfmO6Be8A0— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 22, 2022
CALLS BY ME AND PDX SCANNER
@TriMet since you have "officers" that are citing citizens for "fines" you need to require your officers to SELF IDENTIFY--they should have "name and badge number" clearly visible and provide it when asked by any member of the publichttps://t.co/R6TSR3Ao67#Regressive #failed— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 15, 2022

I recommend reading this excellent report on TriMet and their Fare issues published by @OPALEJOR— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 11, 2022
its long and I only skimmed through it but its a much better approach to transit fares than the oligarchy is proposing pic.twitter.com/nRgWWtsFzw
TriMet weighs 30-cent fare increase in 2024 https://t.co/ZDQq7sy9BZ— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 10, 2022
the boregonian with its mainstream baloney parroting TriMet press releases
*** That proposed increase would bring in an estimated $5.1 million to $6.2 million per year, said Nancy Young-Oliver***— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 10, 2022
And that is gonna bring down the agency!
Can't people see through these lies?
It obvious lies!
--TriMet’s board estimated that it was facing a $155 million shortfall and would need to make major budget cuts between fiscal years 2026 and 2030. But because of the infusion of federal funds, the agency will not have to make those reductions until fiscal year 2028.--— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 8, 2022
JUST LOOK AT THESE SALARIES---MCFARLANES SALARY IN 2012 WAS $212,000
SEE ALL THE OUTRAGEOUS SALARIES BEING PAID TO TRIMET EXECUTIVES AT THE SAME TIME THE TRANSIT SYSTEM IS IN TOTAL COLLAPSE HERE
TriMet executives and Board are PROVEN liars when they told the public that fare evasion will not be treated as a crime pic.twitter.com/U114w8kpuX— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 6, 2022
When Mcfarlane got caught with his hand in the cookie jar he was making $221,000 a year.
Desue is now making $365,000 a year and TriMet has totally collapsed.
This is what 'legal' corruption looks like

this is about TRANSDEV-the company TriMet just handed MULTI MILLIONS too
After further investigation it turns out this was not some random act of kindness— Al M (@AlYourPalster) November 2, 2022
-it’s the law and a desperate attempt to keep operators from leaving- pic.twitter.com/3vrEZbwBvk
I'm getting information that this is not an act of "kindness" by Desue, he is being forced to do this by Oregon law if he want to keep offering that carrot to new operators.
And now I have just proven that he did not do this out of kindness and fair play...its THE LAW
Somebody needs to explain to me why they think they need a fare increase when there is OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS IN THIER BUDGET that has nothing to do with operations.
The FY2023 Adopted Budget totals just over $1.93 billion and includes: Resources supporting FY2023 total $1.93 billion including $78.8 million in operating revenue, $470.1 million in tax revenues, and $164.5 million in Federal funding.
Day-to-day Operating Requirements of $748.9 million including $441.5 million to operate the system, $159.8 million in general and administrative costs, $84.5 million for other post-employment benefits (OPEB), and $63.1 million for debt service.
As we who follow the agency know that the transit division that supplies transit to citizens is barely functional these days and very unreliable. This isn't unique to TriMet is basically all of the larger transit agencies.
The career technocracy whines about the "operator shortage" but do nothing but offer a bonus to new hires. All current employees are excluded from this offer however, which is an insult to all the employees currently suffering through the job.
All the calls are listed and transcribed over there but we will still be posting the highlights on Twitter and this blog
Just got my 10-year "pin". It's a mini drop of cheap metal with a miniscule ruby in the middle. No "10" anywhere on it. Kind of a letdown, really. As if 300,000 safe miles warrants nothing but a cheap trinket. https://t.co/fv57E1BE5Z— Al M (@AlYourPalster) October 18, 2022
I'm getting tired of listening to the brutality that is today's TriMet so I won't be posting these calls for awhile.
But have no fear you can still listen to these calls by going to @REALPDXSCANNER on Twitter and scrolling through his feed
