TriMet is exploring WES frequency reductions of up to 15 minutes and/or reducing hours of operation.
Also another Open House in Happy Valley has been scheduled:
Wednesday, March 10, 2010, 5-7 p.m.
Happy Valley City Hall
16000 SE Misty Drive
Happy Valley, OR 97086
With all the pressure of WES, we will see what takes shape on this one!
For complete details, and videos from the new conference, see my earlier blog post.
Over this last weekend, I went up to C-Tran land for Happy Hour. I took Line 4 to Line 3B. Well, for some reason I-5 was backed up like a Friday afternoon (on a Saturday) and we got in to Downtown Vancouver at 4:00p, the 3B leaves at 4:02p, but it left at 4:01p and chose not to wait for 1) his scheduled time to depart and 2) a bus coming up behind him. I thought I'd call the ride number to report it......someone ANSWERED! Thats right, little 'ol C-Tran mans the phones on weekends!!! In chatting with a fellow blogger, I looked how other transit agencies match up in this area. Now because a certain someone a few of us know, swears by "Ridership by Capita", because it puts TriMet higher in ranks, we will use that data in order for the following hours of operations list (as of date this was written):

WES service update
The disabled train has been removed from the tracks. Remaining morning commute trips made by that train will be served by shuttle bus. Trips departing Wilsonville at 8:21 a.m. and Beaverton Transit Center at 8:58 a.m. will be provided by shuttle buses. Riders can take the shuttle, ride a local bus or wait for the next WES train, and should add up to 30 minutes to their commute.
