The TriMet Squeeze

Listen to the show (mp3, 12.3M)

Have you heard about the cyclist who blocked a TriMet bus and was punched by a rider who was let off the bus? Probably you have because it was front page news in the Oregonian. Well, the issue has really blown up. People have all sorts of opinions on the incident, but now they are also having heated discussions about the behaviors of TriMet operators. Even the folks of Breakfast on the Bridge are getting involved to give doughnuts to bus drivers as a thank you for sharing the road. Jonathan Maus's blog BikePortland.org has about 160 posts on all the TriMet articles combined!

It's apparent people have a lot to say, so Kiran Limaye, TriMet Bicycle Coordinator, has been invited to come on the KBOO Bike Show along with bus operator Leroy Minner.
