Celebrating the opening of the MAX Orange Line on Sept. 12, 2015

About 40,000 trips were taken on the MAX Orange Line on Saturday, Sept. 12 on opening day. Also, tens of thousands of people experienced Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, for the first time and visited the community events all along the line.

The $1.49 billion Orange Line came in on time and under budget in the range of $48 million. The Orange Line and nearby bus service mean more service and better connections for our riders to get to jobs, school and other community activities.

While the grand opening celebration was a blast, the fun continues this week!

TriMet’s “Orange Marks the Spot” mobile scavenger hunt continues through Saturday, Sept. 20.

TriMet launched the mobile scavenger hunt – Orange Marks the Spot – on opening day and there’s still time to get in the game! We’re giving away about two dozen prizes a day, and three lucky grand prize winners will get two roundtrip tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies.
