Our friends over at TriMet are looking for some help with their bike facilities and other bike-related projects.

They just listed a want ad for a Bike Programs Intern. Here’s the job description:

    “Assist in the development of a TriMet bicycle facilities master plan. Collect, research and evaluate bike, bike parking and bike rider information; make recommendations for bike use and facility improvements. Assist in planning for bike-related events…”

This sounds like an interesting opportunity and it’s good to see TriMet working on these projects. If you’re interested in applying, check out more details on their website.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan

    Sounds like a very interesting gig. The only bummer is that it’s temporary and you have to be a full-time student in urban planning to apply.

    Well they certainly need help. Here’s what happened to me yesterday. The airport max was not working, and the blue line was intermittent. I attempted to board the blue max as it arrived. Several doors were crowded, but I found some space at the front step-up car. As I went toward it, the trimet official (from the other end) told me I couldn’t board. As he arrived he said that I couldn’t put a bike against the driver door. I said I would put it alongside the door (where there’s a bike area). He said that I couldn’t because there were people standing there (which he wouldn’t have been able to see from back there). Missing that train, I waited 30 min before giving up and taking a bus. Since this and other instances of bikers getting kicked off, I will no longer promote Trimet in any way.
