Black Friday kicks off seasonal bus service adjustments at Clackamas Town Center

by

Small, temporary route adjustments will help keep bus lines that serve Clackamas Town Center Transit Center on time

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season brings some changes for riders on buses that serve Clackamas Town Center. On seven days in late November and December, we will temporarily detour buses that use the mall’s parking lot to reach Clackamas Town Center Transit Center. By making this slight, short-term adjustment, we’ll do our part to decrease traffic in the busy parking area. This is the seventh year we’ve worked with Clackamas Town Center to make this change, to help keep everyone moving.

When the detour is in place, bus stops at Clackamas Town Center next to the MAX station (ID 13247 and 13248) will be closed. The stop for buses arriving at Clackamas Town Center mall (ID 12921) will move to a temporary location on Driveway #3, which runs between the movie theater and Monterey Avenue. Buses will then travel to the SE Fuller Rd MAX Station to transfer passengers to the MAX Green Line. Buses will board customers at the Fuller Rd station before continuing to the Clackamas Town Center mall stop (ID 12922). We will have Customer Service staff onsite, to help with directions and answer questions.

During these service adjustments, make a plan for your trip. Give yourself at least 15 minutes extra to make connections and transfers. Remember to dress for the weather, as the temporary stops do not have shelters.

The Clackamas Town Center Transit Center MAX Station will remain open. The detour does not affect MAX Green Line service.

Options to connect with MAX Green Line:

  • Stay onboard your bus and continue to SE Fuller Rd MAX Station.
  • Board a bus at the temporary stop on Driveway #3 and transfer at the SE
    Fuller Rd MAX Station.
  • Get off at the Clackamas Town Center Mall stop (ID 12922) and proceed about a ½ mile to Clackamas Town Center TC MAX Station.

Options to connect with bus lines:

  • Proceed about ½ mile from Clackamas Town Center TC MAX Station to Clackamas Town Center Mall stop (ID 12922).
  • Get off MAX at SE Fuller Rd MAX Station and board bus at the temporary stop in the parking lot.

Shop and ride safely

Shoppers are welcome to bring bags and packages on board buses and MAX trains, but please make sure they don’t block the aisle, stairs or doorway. Hold on to your belongings while riding and double-check your seating area for items left behind before exiting. Please keep security in mind when using a TriMet Park & Ride or any public parking lot by locking packages and anything of value out of sight. Experts suggest keeping your car’s interior “showroom” clean – as if you just drove it off the showroom floor.
