TriMet adjusts service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day


More people ride transit on this day than any other holiday

TriMet carries more riders on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day than any other holiday, so we are providing more service that day than we do on a typical holiday in order to meet the demand. In 2013, we provided more than 216,000 trips on the holiday, nearly 70 percent of the ridership we see on a standard weekday.
