“So over you is the greatest enemy a man can have and that is fear. I know some of you are afraid to listen to the truth—you have been raised on fear and lies. But I am going to preach to you the truth until you are free of that fear…” — Malcolm X
It’s always fun to make TriMet managers unhappy. It is even more fun when their own systems don’t even work. Of course, today being Black Friday, you would think that most places would be open today.
This audio was at 11:52, during normal business hours for TriMet.
Very limited resources? On a Friday? A business day Friday?
So here we go, TriMet stealing money again from riders, refusing to give money back to the riders, and now the rider is forced to pay for ANOTHER ticket or face a $175 fine, arrest, or both if Fare Inspector Larry Boltjes has his way!
Unsafe mirror? Well, that seems reasonable.
I guess TriMet really doesn’t care about safety, does it? Hey Harry, what are you going to do about it? Eat more turkey?
Wait, so you’re telling me that figuring out that after one trip that it’s unsafe is wrong? I guess safety means SHIT at TriMet.
I guess Maintenance says F*** safety as well, they don’t care.
Must be a bomb, time to shut down the entire transit system.
Um, so much for caring about problems on the MAX. Should this controller take anger management classes?
Welcome to the $34 million piece of crap radio system.
This is just ONE day with the TriMet system, very selected audio transmissions. Please tell me, do you REALLY think safety, communication, and customer service are real priorities at TriMet?
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I know that it’s been a while since I’ve posted, due to legal matters and working 50 hours a week, but tonight, on the day we give thanks, lets look at how the largest bullshit agency gives thanks during this holiday season.
Nothing about the 7 hour MAX shutdown last week?
1-7 p.m. 11/29: Clackamas Transit Center and Mall bus stops are closed due to holiday traffic congestion. Plan ahead: http://t.co/0zaeTBgqkS
I decided to check the status of the bus fleet this morning to see how late the buses were running. To my surprise, I saw a bus that was really early.
328 minutes early? That has to be a hiccup.
This screenshot was taken at 9:28am, the same time that the location was reported. As you can see, it’s sitting at Powell Garage, still signed in. It is showing that it is 328 minutes early, which makes no sense.
It made me look at the entire list of buses. This isn’t the only bus showing early.
So tell me, TriMet, how do you explain THIS screw up? Solar Flare? Incorrect programming in the radios?
I have not been banned from blogging. Doing so would be a violation of my 1st Amendment Rights.
Lets look at a lie that nobody has seemed to notice and has caused massive punishment for riders.
When the new ticket machines came out, TriMet said, “2-hour tickets on buses would finally be valid for the full two hours. There had always been variability with manual-issued transfers. The tear-off transfers were not precise in showing the valid time of the transfer and some riders got more or less time than the designated two hours. The ticket printer equalized all fares for all riders across all modes.”
