Elevator for Sunset Transit Center’s Park and Ride garage to close for maintenance


Those who use TriMet’s Sunset Transit Center’s Park and Ride should plan ahead as scheduled maintenance will close the elevator to the parking structure’s upper floors. The closure will run from 8 a.m. Monday, Jan. 26 through about 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30 while crews conduct state-required elevator maintenance. Additional work will be done Monday, Feb. 2 through Friday, Feb. 6 during limited overnight hours, from 8 p.m. to 5 p.m., to lessen the inconvenience on users.

The following lines serve the Sunset Transit Center Park and Ride:

  • MAX Blue Line
  • MAX Red Line
  • 20-Burnside/Stark
  • 48-Cornell
  • 50-Cedar Mill
  • 59-Walker/Park Way
  • 62-Murray Blvd

Those reliant on the Park and Ride’s elevator should park on the ground level. There are a number of spaces on the ground floor set aside for those with disabled parking permits. Those who do not have permits may consider using the Millikan Way Park and Ride located at southwest Millikan Way and 141st Avenue in Beaverton. The surface parking lot there has 400 spaces but does tend to fill up by about 8 a.m. on weekdays. It is served by the MAX Blue Line and bus Line 62-Murray Blvd. Other Park and Ride options can be found at trimet.org/parkandride.

Improving the ride

TriMet is committed to investing in our system, maintaining equipment and making upgrades to ensure that our rail system, vehicles and facilities remain safe, reliable and efficient far into the future.

We know our riders want more and better service. That’s why, over the next few years, we are working to grow our network of buses and trains while improving the overall rider experience. We’re gradually bringing service frequency back up to pre-recession levels, which means less waiting and less crowding on board buses and trains. New transit projects, such as the Portland-Milwaukie MAX Line opening in September 2015, will provide transportation options. Learn more at trimet.org/bettertransit.
