TriMet and germs

Much attention has been paid to reductions in TriMet’s security staff and the resulting increase in fare evasion. But according to Joseph Rose at The Oregonian, the busses are dirtier, too. Health experts indicate that bacteria levels on TriMet vehicles (particularly busses with cloth seats) are most likely not a health hazard, and the new busses on order for next year will have vinyl seats and thus have fewer places where nasties can hide.
