Another Attempt at a TriMet Riders Union

Last year there was an effort to form a Transit Riders Union. I don’t know the official state of that effort (someone please comment and tell us) but I understand that effort has factionalized somewhat.

Now OPAL (Organizing People – Activating Leaders), a local environmental justice organization, is working on organizing TriMet riders, using principles gleaned from the Los Angeles Bus Riders Union.

OPAL is holding a monthly meeting from 6-8pm every second Tuesday (next up on April 13th) at their offices:

2407 SE 49th Ave, Portland

RSVP to 503 928-4354

If Only…

I’m going to miss David Bragdon’s sense of humor when he’s termed out as Metro President.

They’ve done an April fool’s day agenda (I suspect it will hit the web later today) for the Council.

I can only wish this were real:

7.3 Resolution No. 10-4140, For the Purpose of Getting Real About the Columbia River Crossing.
