Secretary Of State Releases TriMet Audit

OPB | Jan. 29, 2014 12:15 p.m. | Updated: Jan. 29, 2014 1:56 p.m.

Last summer, Oregon lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to direct Secretary of State Kate Brown’s office to conduct a thorough audit of  TriMet, the state’s largest public transit agency. Trimet has been the subject of controversy in recent years involving issues from poor labor relations to driver fatigue to rate hikes.

The bill mandated that the audit be completed no later than the end of this week, and Secretary of State Kate Brown released the audit Tuesday. Its recommendations include improving labor relations, safety and finances.

Do you rely on TriMet to get around? What questions do you have about how TriMet is run?


Editor’s note: This post has been modified to reflect that the secretary of state’s office lifted its original Wednesday morning embargo of the audit, and released it Tuesday. The full audit is available at the Secretary of State’s website.
