Better service, where it’s needed, when it’s needed
TriMet launched bus lines 42 and 74 last March, in response to growing demands for service in Washington County, East Portland and Gresham. Later this year, we will begin a historic expansion of service throughout our tri-county service district. We’re adding earlier and later trips, improving frequency and bringing back round-the-clock bus service. We’re also making transit more accessible, with the introduction of a low-income fare. How can we better serve you? Let us know at trimet.org/futureservice.
