Twitter / Nathan Garvison: Air conditioning on the MAX. It's warmer outside. Thanks, Trimet. You make me appreciate my wool coat. :/

Twitter / Lisa Brandt Heckman: Auggh! They booted us all off the 14 due to mechanical problems. Waiting for another from the garage to rescue us. #trimet

Twitter / Karen Evans: first, my 54 was 8 mins late, now my 47 is at least 10 mins late. awesome effing day! #trimet

Twitter / marsala1: Fellow bus rider just said he is giving up on trimet and buying a car. Wow.

Twitter / gazellesoncrack: just got a call from @trimet re: a NYE complaint I made (a MAX just didn't show). Can't believe they called- I am impressed.

Twitter / Joseph Manley: Thank you Trimet for making me late to my first class of the term. Its ok, I forgive you. Every relationship has its ups and downs.

Twitter / Prophetnoise: Don't lie to me Zeffino. Trimet is not a fast cheap alternative. The same $ for the 1 gallon of gas it takes to drive it takes 4 x as long

Twitter / Reid Parham: The busses that don't smell like piss will smell like weed #trimet
