Mostly, You all want to see management take the big cuts. Maybe if they just planned better? All in all, its a rough time for many transit agencies, and we hate to see whats happening to the service levels and what its leaving those who depend on it no choices..

to worry about Bus Stop signage being correct.
So what this tells me is, when we get downtown, the bus will turn on 2nd, bringing me closer to my destination. What the sign does not tell you is this routing changed 10 months ago! So once we can *run* the system well, then we can *build* more. In the meantime, get this fixed, this IS misleading information and can cause a customer to snarl at a driver for information the driver can not fix! You have been informed.
The part you can not see is the opposing light is still red. TriMet is tucked very nicely behind the stop line, meanwhile the Portland Police car is more than half way in the crosswalk. The the police are supposed to set the example, another reason why the public respect rate is so low.
Based on customer feedback, they have revised the service cut plan.
Some of the changes to the proposal include:
Line 154 was saved form being eliminated.
No Weekend bus lines are being eliminated, those proposed will see hours of service reductions.
Looking at WES cuts.
Now you have more time to get your feedback in, let them know what you think by April 23rd:
