Adjustments to some bus/MAX lines and return of bus service across Sellwood Bridge start December 4/5


Service changes to improve connections, match ridership/traffic conditions

Minor adjustments to six TriMet bus lines and one early morning MAX run begin December 4 and 5 to improve connections but the biggest change coming will be the return of buses to the Sellwood Bridge.

Line 99, which runs currently from Clackamas12-2-16-sellwood-bridge-4-of-6-with-overhead Community College (CCC) to Portland City Center via the Ross Island Bridge during weekday rush hours, will transition to a new route across the Sellwood Bridge on Monday, Dec. 5. This service connects CCC, Milwaukie, Sellwood, John’s Landing and Downtown Portland. The change also brings new stops on SW Macadam and SE Tacoma. Lines 35/36 will make minor location changes to their stops at the west end of the bridge to make easier connections with Line 99. Click here for more information.
