Default Here is a copy of an email I sent to Trimet

Here is an email I sent to Trimet regarding the second close pass on SE 39th

At 7pm on May 4th (today) bus #2640 on the #75 route passed me on my bike with about 12 inches of space. Since this is the 2nd time a #75 bus has done this I am quite concerned. I would assume that drivers are trained rigerously to understand the boundaries of their vehicle. If Trimet drivers are not willing to be in proper command of their vehicle, than more stronger measures will have to be taken. I encourage you to make it clear that drivers are not immune to safety requirements.
