TriMet detours buses out of Clackamas Town Center parking lot to reduce congestion, lessen bus delays

Ten bus lines detour, connect with MAX at SE Fuller Rd Station

TriMet will once again detour 10 bus lines out of the mall parking lot at Clackamas Town Center this weekend and next. Routing the buses around the parking lot rather than through it on Black Friday this year and busy shopping days last year helped us reduce delays throughout the bus lines. In previous years, buses ended up some two hours behind schedule after getting stuck in the parking lot. Detouring them around the 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 – 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 Clackamas Town Center Transit Center and the temporary stop on Monterey Avenue.

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.
