TriMet Gets Tough

Via the Daily Journal of Commerce, TriMet has toughened their exclusion policies:

TriMet is adding intimidation as behavior restricted on the system, which includes violent, threatening or disruptive behavior or conduct intended and likely to provoke a violent response.

TriMet also is adding boisterous and unreasonably loud conduct as a restriction on the system.

“These changes give us more options to deal with problem riders and make riding transit more comfortable for everyone,” said TriMet General Manager Fred Hansen in a statement. “It allows more TriMet personnel to immediately remove a rider who’s being excessively loud and boisterous. These, along with more police officers, security cameras and other safety enhancements, make TriMet a safer and more comfortable transit system.”
