What is the future of transit in the Southwest Corridor?

Help determine short-term improvements and long-term vision for bus service in the area

Help determine the future of transit service in the Southwest Corridor. The corridor runs through Southwest Portland, Tigard, Tualatin, King City, Sherwood, Durham, Lake Oswego and West Linn. What should it look like? How best can transit connect those communities with jobs, schools and services?

As part of the larger Southwest Corridor Plan being developed by Metro and 13 local partners, TriMet is taking a fresh look at bus service in the corridor as we develop the Southwest Service Enhancement Plan.

We’re holding a series of meetings to get the community’s input on short-term improvements and the long-term vision for bus service in the area. Let us know how you think transit service and access to transit could be improved to better serve the area. The meetings kick off this Thursday, Jan. 9.

Southwest Corridor Plan

The Southwest Corridor Plan is a comprehensive approach to achieving community visions through integrated land use and transportation planning. The plan incorporates existing local land use visions, such as the Barbur Concept Plan, the Tigard High Capacity Transit Land Use Plan, linking Tualatin and the Sherwood Town Center Plan.
