My problem with TriMet is simply one of accountability. The governor is the only elected official in its management chain, and it would be a strange gubernatorial election that hinged on TriMet performance. It's hard for me to make the case for increasing the funding for TriMet when that bureaucracy doesn't have direct oversight by elected officials (Metro, say). I'd much rather have the Portland Streetcar under City control, because then we can have much more influence on its operation and expansion.
