WOW, that's quite an explanation.
Obviously "cwherewetku" must work in TRIMET operations.
As a TRIMET operator myself I can tell you that virtually all of us operators really strive to do the best we can during this sort of event and provide the best service possible.
The public needs to be prepared and dressed PROPERLY!
You could be out there a long long time.
Buses break down, buses get stuck, things don't go smoothly.
START WALKING TO YOUR DESTINATION!
Virtually all bus drivers WILL STOP FOR YOU if possible if you signal you want the bus!
Think that the bus IS NOT COMING, don't let other people take responsibility for you!
Take care of yourself!
