A few news items:
- The Metro Council has voted to approve the work done so far on the SW Corridor.
- No more charging your cell phones from TriMet ticket machine kiosks.
- Stephen J. Smith reports that in 2015, the FRA will permit European rolling stock on US rails. This is a potential win for transit technologies like commuter rail, as European trains are lighter and more fuel-efficient than trains legal under prior US rules (which essentially mandated that they be built like tanks).
