TriMet reschedules open houses on future service improvements

Open houses provide opportunity to learn about and leave feedback on service improvements planned for Fiscal Year 2020

TriMet has rescheduled three future service open houses, postponed earlier this month due to the threat of severe winter weather. The open houses give the public an opportunity to learn about service improvements and increases planned for fall 2019 and spring 2020. We’re looking to boost service, upgrading two bus lines to Frequent Service, adding weekend service and making adjustments to some routes for more direct and reliable trips.

Proposed improvements for Fiscal Year 2020

We’re adding and expanding service with funding from the Keep Oregon Moving law. Here’s what we’re planning for the next year:

  • Upgrading Line 20-Burnside/Stark and Line 76-Beaverton/Tualatin to Frequent Service, with buses arriving every 15 minutes or better most of the day, every day.
  • Adding Sunday service on Line 30-Estacada and Line 32-Oatfield.
  • Adding more trips in the morning, afternoon and late night, as well as running buses on Saturdays and Sundays on Line 74-162nd Ave.
  • Adjusting the routes of Line 19-Woodstock/Glisan and Line 70-12th/NE 33rd Ave to improve reliability.
  • Moving the current Line 78-Lake Oswego/Beaverton to take over the route of Line 42-Denney/Hall between Beaverton and Tigard, as well as continuing to run to Lake Oswego. This will bring weekend service to an area that currently doesn’t have it, along with trips earlier and later on weekdays.
