But didn't we hear about this back last winter and nothing appeared to happen?
I stand the same about this.
Stupid idea, Boring. Don't do it. Simple as this: the people who do use TriMet's service out there are using it because they NEED it and have no other option. You cut away from TriMet and what will those people (the majority of which use LIFT) do? You don't have anything else planned to fill the gap do you? No? Thought so. So don't do it. These people need their transit access. Plain and simple.
The only thing i have to say is that when they were coming up with the cost of this bridge in the first place, shouldn't they have made sure they were spending the least amount of money possible initially?
Boring folks, like residents of Sandy and elsewhere, have had about enough of TriMet, and they're getting ready to pull the plug from the trough. Businesses there pay the same rate as businesses in downtown Portland, but receive about one quarter of one percent of the level of service. They're being bled to pay for Portland's rail infatuation, and they're looking to get out.
Boy I sure hope that they're overstating this somehow or that the hurricane changes paths suddenly to miss the US cities in the line of fire. If this does hit it will be devastating to the cities/states in its path.
