We did have a similar event four years ago.
Max completely failed back then and the buses were about the same as this event.
Mr Banta was not here four years ago, so for him, its a first time event.
Peggy Hansen was not Director of Transportation either, but I believe she was in charge of Road supervisors.
If its any comfort, Seattle had almost the identical experience as Portland.
Will anything change?
Trimet is an institutional bureaucracy with lots of layers of management.
Too many cooks spoil the soup as they say.
I sure as heck wouldn't want to be in charge!
BUS SERVICE IN THESE CONDITIONS IS VERY SPOTTY, even on the high density lines.
TRIMET needs to make that clear,
"expect 20-30 minute delays" which was put out on the media.
I know because I watched almost the whole event.
They need to say,
SOME BUSES ARE RUNNING BUT IT IS UNKNOWN IF AND WHEN YOU WILL GET PICKED UP!
