Hansen to Leave TriMet, What Next?

The Tribune is reporting that Fred Hansen will leave TriMet this summer when his current contract ends.

This leaves me with three thoughts:

  1. Obviously Fred has had a tremendous and overwhelmingly positive impact on the region.
  2. For those of us who worry that TriMet’s agenda has become overbalanced toward Light Rail at the expense of local bus service, this would be a key opportunity to re-align the agenda.
  3. For the life of me I can’t figure out where the community would exert pressure on the process to try to push for that modified agenda.
