Detours out of the parking lot help avoid delays throughout bus lines

TriMet will detour 10 bus lines out of the mall parking lot at Clackamas Town Center on Black Friday, Nov. 29 as well as on other busy shopping days during the 2013 holiday season. By routing the buses around the parking lot rather than through it, we avoid anticipated congestion that can lead to delays throughout the bus lines. This lessened delays last year after buses ended up some two hours behind schedule in years past. Removing buses from the parking lot reduces traffic for shoppers while allowing buses to stay on schedule.

Detours – lines 28, 29, 30, 31, 71, 72, 79, 152, 155, 156

Buses will not serve the Clackamas Town Center Transit Center (stop ID 13248) and the Clackamas Town Center Mall stops (stop IDs 12921 and 12922) near the movie theater from
1 p.m. until 7 p.m. on the following days:

  • Friday, November 29
  • Friday – Sunday, December 13, 14, 15
  • Friday – Tuesday, December 20, 21, 22, 23, 24
  • Thursday, December  26

CTC Map
Detoured buses will travel on Monterey Avenue and serve a temporary stop on Monterey near the mall’s parking lot entrance by the movie theater. Temporary stops will be posted in both directions.

MAX/Bus riders

To connect bus riders with the MAX Green Line, buses will serve a temporary stop at the SE Fuller Road MAX Station, about a five-minute ride from Clackamas Town Center. Riders who normally transfer between MAX and buses at the Clackamas Transit Center can do so at the Fuller Road Station or walk about a half mile between the temporary stop on Monterey Avenue and the Clackamas Transit Center.

Signs will be posted at the Clackamas Town Center Transit Center directing waiting riders to the temporary bus stop. Signs will also be up at the Fuller Road Station as well alerting riders to the change. Train operators will also make announcements at the two stops.
