program date: 
Mon, 06/11/2012

Bill Resnick talks with Jon Ostar and Khanh Pham from OPAL about organizing a bus-riders union in Portland. They considerm  Tri-Met's vision of a lighrail utopia while bus-service has diminished and fares have increased, and why these priorities have shifted. They underscore why the bus is the backbone of any transit system and deconstuct the rationale behind putting lightrail at the center of Tri-met's vision. Jon explains different approaches to organizing public transit that do not rely on light-rail and frees up money for services.
