TriMet service improvement

Now Arriving: Better Service!

Over the next month, we’re making some big changes to transit service in the Portland area!

From the highly-anticipated opening of the MAX Orange Line and Tilikum Crossing to more frequent bus service on Sundays, we’re investing in more and better service to make your trips on transiteasier and more convenient.

Here are the highlights:

August 30 – We're adjusting schedules for MAX Blue, Green, Red and Yellow lines to complement forthcoming MAX Orange Line service.

September 12 – We're having a Grand Opening celebration for the MAX Orange Line! You'll find events and activities at most of the new stations, and all TriMet service along with Portland Streetcar and the Portland Aerial Tram will be FREE all day!

September 13 – We're restoring 15-minute service to Frequent Service bus lines on Sundays, meaning Frequent Service buses will run every 15 minutes or better most of the day, every day.

Other bus lines will see improvements in frequency or earlier/later service, and some routes will change to make better connections and match traffic conditions.

Be sure to check the new schedules to see how your trips will be affected!
