BOB IN SEATTLE SEARCHING FOR A BETTER TRANSIT SYSTEM

ATTEMPT TO CENSOR SUNSET BOB'S BULLETIN BOARD!




















This picture of Sunset Bob's highly praised and award winning bulletin board was taken at approximately 4:30 PM Tuesday August 19th and illustrates an attempt to silence Sunset Bob and bring TRIMET personnel back into the "stone age" where only "official" information will be allowed to filter to employees.

MOVEMENT HAS BEGUN TO RENAME PLAZA AFTER SUNSET BOB




















By Ross Wrede, Cub Reporter


While Sunset Bob is taking a well deserved vacation this week, many of his riders on the Cedar Mill Shuttle are pressuring TriMet to rename the Elizabeth Furse Plaza at the Sunset Transit Center in his honor.


No one can recall anything significant that Representative Furse accomplished during her short tenure in the House of Representatives. She did happen to represent Oregon's First District when the Westside MAX line opened in 1998 and perhaps TriMet felt obligated to honor her in some way. Others are galled that she is supporting Senator Gordon Smith in his reelection campaign.


In contrast, Sunset Bob has been the driving force in the success of the Cedar Mill Shuttle with the outstanding service he provides. Bob has also helped to renovate the driver's break room at the Sunset Transit Center. New furniture and artwork has been added to create a more relaxing atmosphere for Trimet's operators. Most recently, Sunset Bob has taken on the faulty ticket machines that plague the Transit Center.


Sunset Bob supporters are hoping that the renaming can be accomplished by September to coincide with the 10 year anniversary of the Transit Center. Bob is out of town this week and unavailable for comment.

Which it can never be or will be ,so it is all a farse or joke!! also now we are to collect and enforce fares wont happen as they r pushing ,because these people live in million dollar homes and don’t need to cheat; so get off our backs, u inconsistently run backward company, and same with NO BIKES ALLOWED rule...if WE want to let someone take on a bike and its not hurting anyone we will as shown with ric unloading a bike and passenger....AND IT GOES ON AND ON..THEY SAY NO RADIO...NO CRUISE CONTROL..NO LEAVING ROUTE.. ...WHERE IS THE REASONABLENESS, THE LOGIC, THE COMMON SENSE...ITS LOST TO A FEW MANAGERS WHO SHOULD BE DIGGING DITCHES FOR ALL THE BRAINS THEY HAVE...........FARE INSPECTION OFF THE RECORD FROM THEM...ITS A FARCE, THERE ARE TONS OF FARE EVADERES..
