August 2013 Open Thread

I’ve been on blog-cation for the past month or so, but here is the open thread for August.

  • The Southwest Corridor Steering Committee unanimously approved the draft recommendations published recently. This includes study of rapid transit (either BRT or LRT) from Portland to Tualatin via Tigard, along with other improvements to local service as well as improvements for other modes.
  • TriMet has a new customer outreach program called Riders Club. and is soliciting feedback on improving rider experience.
  • The Sunrise JTA project, the first phase of the long-planned Sunrise Corridor (and hopefully, the only phase), breaks ground.
  • The launch of the GlobeSherpa mobile ticketing app will be delayed one week due to a cyber-attack on the Apple developer website.

As always, keep it clean and civil, and respect the virtual ride.
