Race for the Cure Rider tips

  • Keep in mind that buses and MAX will be running on Sunday schedules. Not all bus lines have Sunday service.
  • In the morning hours leading up to the event, MAX Blue, Red and Yellow lines have a 35-minute frequency or 35 minutes between trains.
  • TriMet will be adding extra service on the Green Line since regular Sunday service does not begin until 8 a.m. Two extra trains have been scheduled to depart the Clackamas Town Center MAX Station at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. As these trains are being inserted into regular service, please note that they will not appear in the online trip planner.
  • If heading to the event from Clackamas, consider our Line 72-Killingsworth/82nd bus, which runs from Clackamas Town Center to the NE 82nd Ave MAX Station where you can connect with trains.
  • If traveling from east of Gateway Transit Center or west of Beaverton Transit Center, improve your service options by using the Park & Rides at Gateway or Sunset Transit Center, as multiple MAX and bus lines serve those stations and have shorter trips into Portland City Center.

  • Buy a day pass – it’s the same price as two 2-hour tickets. Most of the Race for the Cure events will take longer than two hours.
  • TriMet customer service staff will be at the registration & t-shirt pick-up event sponsored by OHSU at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Friday and Saturday selling advance Day Passes for Sunday.
