Do you hear what I hear? TriMet will make improvements to 10 bus lines in early December

by

Starting Sunday, Dec. 2, schedules on nearly 12 percent of TriMet bus lines will be adjusted; plus, expanded hours coming to TriMet Lost & Found

We made a list and checked it twice, and starting Sunday, Dec. 2, TriMet will deliver something nice to our riders. We’re adding some cheer to 10 bus lines, with better frequency, improved reliability, more convenient transfers and less crowding. We’re also expanding the hours at our Lost & Found office. Consider these improvements our gift to you.

“These changes support our mission to provide transit service that is safe, dependable and easy to use, and they go one step further,” said TriMet Chief Operating Officer, Maurice Henderson. “They help bring an additional level of convenience to riding the bus, making it a more attractive option for getting to work, an appointment, school or play.”

Oh come, all ye faithful

Line 96 in Downtown Portland

Our winter package of service improvements includes frequency upgrades and schedule adjustments to help keep buses on time. On Line 50-Cedar Mill, we’re making it easier to transfer between bus and MAX, and on Line 96-Tualatin/I-5, we’re extending some trips to reach an additional Park & Ride. By adding service, we can also make bus trips more comfortable, with more room to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Schedules on the following bus lines will be adjusted starting Sunday, Dec. 2:

  • Line 22-Parkrose
  • Line 23-San Rafael
  • Line 25-Glisan/Rockwood
  • Line 32-Oatfield
  • Line 38-Boones Ferry Rd
  • Line 39-Lewis & Clark
  • Line 50-Cedar Mill
  • Line 72-Killingsworth/82nd
  • Line 96-Tualatin/I-5
  • Line 99-Macadam/McLoughlin

You better not pout I’m telling you why

Riders, be good for goodness sake. Before you ride on Dec. 2 or Monday, Dec. 3, double check your bus schedule at trimet.org/bus and leave yourself enough time to make adjustments if needed. As always, please arrive at your stop at least five minutes early. Find additional tips for riding here.

Joy to the world

The most wonderful time of the year

TriMet’s 2018 holiday bus

When it comes to improving our service, we’re just getting started. Last fall, TriMet rolled out the largest single bus service expansion our region had seen in decades, and there’s a lot more on the way. Next spring, we’ll put even more service on the street, with improved frequency and an extension of Line 24-Fremont across the Fremont Bridge. We’re also adding a new bus line in Clackamas County and making additional improvements to help keep our region moving. We’re planning for the future, too. Take a look at what’s proposed for the fall of 2019 and spring of 2020. Happy travels to all, and to all a good ride!
