Save the date! Final open house on TriMet’s proposed bus improvements for Fiscal Year 2019


Two new bus lines, all night service to Portland International Airport, the return of 24-hour service, and a split of our longest bus line among the proposals

TriMet invites the public to our final open house on Thursday, Feb. 15 to learn about proposed service improvements for fall 2018 and spring 2019. We’re expanding bus service in response to community feedback and a growing demand for service as the region’s population expands. Among the proposals is the return of 24-hour service on two lines for the first time in more than 30 years. The proposals are part of TriMet’s 10-year expansion plan and reflect our commitment to provide more service and better connections to jobs, services and educational opportunities.

Proposed Service Improvements

  • Line 4-Division/Fessenden – split into two routes to keep buses running on time
  • Line 20-Burnside/Stark – more trips serving the entire line and 24-hour service
  • Line 24-Fremont – more frequent weekday service, addition of weekend service, and an extension to NW Portland and Goose Hollow to connect with MAX
  • Line 57-TV Highway/Forest Grove – 24-hour service
  • Lines 61, 64, 66, 68 – more morning and afternoon trips to better accommodate work shifts on Marquam Hill
