Pitfalls Of Public Transportation, Part IX

Been a while since Part VIII, hasn't it? Haven't had much to gripe about regarding my MAX commute, so that's been nice.

But recently, I've been hearing lots of rumors that the $30 subsidy my company provides us for monthly passes is going away. This, of course, sucks ass. Other companies smaller than CompuHyperGlobalMegaNet fully subsidize TriMet passes for a year at a time, in most cases.

While it will still be more cost-effective to MAX to work than drive, not to mention better for the environment, traffic, etc., it's disappointing to lose that subsidy.

I know, I know. Boo hoo.
