Sneak Peak of Some Upcoming Transit Sleuth TV

Currently I’m in Los Angeles sleuthing about. This is a mere 5% of the video I’ve collected so far, a little transit, a few bikes, some trains, a bit of Los Angeles, a sausage and more. Know where the sausage place is, because it was great, totally worth a visit when you’re in LA! So here’s a short sneak peek of upcoming Transit Sleuth TV footage… enjoy! Remember, episode 3 is coming out this Monday at 7:30am.

Transit Sleuth TV : Episode 2 “To Orenco, Mobile Ticketing, Powell’s and Introducing Jonathan Scheff!”

In this episode I’ve added a new segment around an interview with one of our local Portlanders. This episode I’m talking to Jonathan Scheff in the middle segment of the show.

Adventure Segment

This episode starts off with an adventure that Paul Peterson and I took via the Trimet #4 with a transfer to the Blue Line MAX out to Orenco to check on how that neighborhood has been developing. It’s grown a lot and changed for the better in just the last couple years. These days one can even see the cranes working on the Intel complex. Paul and I also have a chat about what to do or not to do at Orenco. We grab some Sushi at Yuki’s and then head back.

During our trip Paul and I battle with trying to figure out where his tickets went on the Globe Sherpa Mobile Ticketing Application for Trimet. It seems he was able to get it figured out via their support, as he’d hit a bug of some sort. The other things that was interesting was that he had the iOS 7 beta and it was actually working great. However Trimet and Globe Sherpa have offered differing information on iOS 7 working with the application or not. The verdict – it’s confusing whether one is doing the right thing or not with the application.

Interview Segment *new*

After that I interview Jonathan Scheff about his move from New York to Portland, bike commuting and bike adventures. Jonathan is the first of many interviews that I’ll have on Transit Sleuth TV talking about biking missions, transit rides and other adventures! Jonathan kicks this off for us with some tales of moving woe and risky bridge traversals.

Something Useful Segment

This useful segment is a simple life suggestion. I cover a cool place to just chill out, watch a streetcar roll by on the flanged wheel or just watch the fascinating individuals of Portland passing by.

Transit Sleuth TV : Episode 1 “Transit Meet n’ How to Carry Wine & Gelato”

The first episode of Transit Sleuth TV we dive into the world of transit and some of the uber nerds that keep tabs on the transit operators themselves, along with the tech of the trade. Tonight I go on a transit meet where a number of the notorious transit crew meet for an evening of eats, drinks and discussion.
