From Portland Afoot
TriMet trivia is a rich and inviting field.
- 1 (c) The same driver had been previously fired after literally kicking a rider off the bus, then reinstated after a union complaint.
- 2 (b) The coyote incident was also utterly true, a result of TriMet's decision to build the Red Line through largely undeveloped fields in hope of attracting dense transit-oriented development.
- 3 (a) Baltimore does surprisingly well for its size, too, but ranked far below both Portland and Seattle in transit ridership. This may change with the end of the Free Rail Zone and Seattle's Ride Free area.
- 4 (c) Bus bike racks were an early advocacy project of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance.
- 5 (b) Rose City Transit faced bankruptcy due to its inability to cover obligations to Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757 workers and retirees.
- 6 (b) Tip: if you lose something from the TriMet lost and found, keep calling. If it comes in after you call, they won't contact you.
- 7 (a) The governor's appointments must be confirmed by the state legislature.
- 8 (c) See our low-car tunes page for a list of great transit and bike songs, and add your own favorites.
- 9 (b) Bus drivers are frequently heroic.
