TriMet adds extra service for Independence Day celebrations


Extra MAX trains and buses to run as needed

Independence Day service

Because of the holiday, TriMet will be adjusting service on July 4:

  • MAX will run on Saturday schedules,
  • Buses will run on Sunday schedules,
  • WES Commuter Rail will not run.

TriMet is adding extra service for riders who want to enjoy the fireworks display along Portland’s waterfront. Additional MAX trains and buses will run as needed from 9 p.m. until the end of service.

Riders should expect crowded buses and trains that night. In addition to the fireworks, the Waterfront Blues Festival and the Barbershop Harmony Society’s international convention will both be big draws to the downtown core area.
