I made several mistakes in Friday’s 2016 preview:

  • CT will add 3,300 service hours in March, not 33,000. September will be 30,000-35,000 hours.
  • Although the Mukilteo Park and Ride will break ground this year, it won’t open till 2017.
  • Pierce Transit will add service hours in September, not March.

I regret the errors.

    1. Have those responsible for the errors been sacked? And if not, have those responsible for the sacking also been sacked?

  1. Careful, Martin. You could be setting a precedent. For instance, when any agency’s figures come up drastically below predicted performance, or when projects come on line months behind schedule may be a good way out to call these things errors and just apologize.

    Only one thing worse we have to watch out for: When something is screwed up until the bolt breaks, guilty party can now call it “A perfect storm.” Though I think certain law enforcement agencies already have that one under copy right.


    1. There could maybe be a new STB policy: any time any of the unpaid staff gets something wrong, their paycheck gets cut in half.
