The Tribune is reporting that Fred Hansen will leave TriMet this summer when his current contract ends.
This leaves me with three thoughts:
- Obviously Fred has had a tremendous and overwhelmingly positive impact on the region.
- 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.
- 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.
