Is there a bus stop (or bus stops) in your community you would like to give some extra care and attention? Consider adopting a stop.
Caring for our environment takes teamwork
Just like winning a game requires the effort and participation of everyone on the team, everyone plays a part in keeping our environment clean. If you're part of a business or community group, you can help make a difference through TriMet's Adopt-A-Stop Program.
We have close to 7,000 bus stops in our transit system, and while we do our best to stay on top of litter and vandalism, it's a huge task. When civic-minded businesses or organizations volunteer to help us maintain litter-free bus stops, they help make the region a better place to live and work for everyone.
How it works
By adopting a stop, a business or organization (such as a community group, church or school) agrees to keep a stop or stops litter-free. If you're part of a group interested in adopting a stop for at least one year, here's how you can help:
- Have a designated representative of your group contact us about the stop or stops your group wants to adopt.
- We'll provide you with trash receptacles for the stops you adopt. You provide the trash bags, pick up litter, and empty the receptacles when they get full.
- As a thank you for your efforts, we'll also put up a plaque at each location acknowledging your group as the stop sponsor.
If your group is ready to start making a contribution to the community, you can contact us by emailing AdoptAStopProgram@trimet.org or by calling 503-238-RIDE (7433).
