TriMet's westside plans include more service to job centers in Hillsboro, as 'solar system' evolves | OregonLive.com
While TriMet's MAX Blue Line runs deep into the city's core, bus service hasn't significantly changed since 1997, according to TriMet planners, before the light-rail trains hummed into downtown Hillsboro.
That is suck BS, they have cut so much service from the west side I can't believe they would make a statement like that. (actually of course I should believe they would make up something so absurd)
"You have to draw a new solar system," Rob Dixon, Hillsboro assistant city manager, said of bus service.
Well that's very cute of course.
But ever since Neil McFarlane joined the agency as general manager in 2010, the hand has been extended.
I know isn't he wonderful? Too bad he hates his retirees and is trying to starve them to death.
"It was just exciting to have the head of the agency acknowledge that the paradigm that most of the system was built on is not an accurate paradigm anymore," Dixon said.
Ya I'm so excited I can hardly sit in my chair!
TriMet has faced $56 million in budget shortfalls since 2008, and is battling with the Amalgamated Transit Union 757 on health benefits for employees.
We all knew this was coming. Instead of making pie in the sky plans why doesn't the fools that run Trimet get its house in order and stop with the false promises and disguised anti union propaganda. This iPublish Posts disgraceful!
