Portland Afoot - Money Episode

This month's Money episode makes budgets exciting. We talk about TriMet's sweet balance-the-budget tool (and it's not-so-sweet proposed cuts), the city of Portland's transportation cuts and Getaround, the peer-to-peer carsharing service which is coming to Portland.

This month's podcast features twitter transit celebrity Dr. Jeff Guardalabene. We discuss his holiday transit fare project to get TriMet tickets to those in need, why some TriMet drivers clearly need counseling, and where to see people doing prison chin-ups on the MAX. 

One of the best parts of this episode is the intro music, "On the Bus (No. 1 Bus)" by Sue Palmer & Joff Winterhart with musician Simon Roberts, all about riding the bus in the OTHER Portland (no, not that one, the one in England.)

Enjoy your holiday!
