Whenever I hear "Orenco Station" I think of a song I like called Orinoco Flow by an artist named Enya (look her up on youtube, she is great). I don't know...Orenco and Orinoco sound similar...do they not?
And just so ya know...TriMet is planning to try to do this again come January. That should be fun.
This is an interesting view. I believe this could easily be true since it is entirely possible and something that seems like something TriMet would do. And why is the picture so bad? If it was a real thing, wouldn't the picture be a little clearer, as the person would really want to make sure that it was obvious. You can hardly tell that the driver is 'using a cell phone'.
FYI, that picture was taken inside a 1600 which the 155 (as far as I know and have seen) uses 1600s regularly out of Powell garage.
The fact that this did just come out of the blue after nearly a year since the last similar thing like this happened is quite sketchy...
Well, one thing is for sure, this is going to be very interesting to see how it all ends up.
Bus driver 'caught' talking on phone:
I wouldn't be so quick to condemn the driver. From the terrible picture, it looks like the driver is using the bus phone, as in, they would've been talking to dispatch.
But if the driver really was using their cell phone, boy was that a stupid idea...
