TriMet and ODOT partner to link Sunset Transit Center to Oregon Coast

by

New POINT intercity bus stop will connect TriMet riders to many north coast destinations

Today marked the beginning of a new bus connection at the Sunset Transit Center, but this service gets riders all the way to the Oregon Coast. TriMet, in partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) POINT intercity bus service, has added a new stop at our second largest transit center, linking transit riders to this coastal connector along its Portland-Astoria route.

The Ppoint-mapOINT bus now stops at the Sunset Transit Center, located at 10470 SW Barnes Rd in Beaverton four times per day, every day. This added stop now provides direct connections for POINT riders traveling from the coast to all destinations in the greater Portland area via the MAX Blue and Red lines, five bus lines and the Forest Heights shuttle. This is the first time the POINT has served a TriMet transit center, providing improved regional connections.
