Here are some of the highlights from the last few weeks:


Learning numbers and letters with @trimet – not staged, I swear!


I don’t think Trimet realizes they have the Triforce symbol on their buses.


#Happilyeverafter @ TriMet Quatama/NW 205th Ave MAX Station


@trimet Save over $300,000 over typical 40 year career using #TriMet on cost of car alone. Add gas and it’s scary.


Inside track repair vehicle there is a coffeepot! #bestfeature #trimet


From AM @trimet bus ride #2: chivalry is alive and well in #pdx. Saw 4 diff ppl give up seat to seniors or opposite sex (both men and wmn)


#portland from the bus zoom zoom!!! @ Trimet Stop 704


Yes, a dance flashmob on a streetcar IS completely normal here. No one who rides Trimet regularly would even blink an eye #Grimm
