Local Issues



TriMet bus line possible changes (including #6 bus)

In 2017–18, we're focusing on adding and improving connections to jobs and schools.


We want to bring more bus service your way next year, with a focus on a more reliable ride and better connections to jobs and schools.

In 2017–18 we’re proposing to streamline, extend or add service to routes in North Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Milwaukie, Gresham and Troutdale. Before we make any changes, we want to know what you think.

You will discover plant types and management practices that provide habitat to attract and sustain beneficial insects that help your garden thrive.
