Riders: In March 2014, we're restoring 15-minute mid-day service on 10 Frequent Service bus lines. Learn more
TriMet's Frequent Service bus lines run about every 15 minutes during the morning and afternoon rush hours on weekdays. MAX runs every 15 minutes or better most of the day, every day. (Service is less frequent in the early morning, mid-day and evening.)
Frequent Service lines connect the regional hubs where many riders live and work.
In addition to providing more frequency during commute times, these lines have a number of features designed to make your trips easier, faster and more comfortable:
- new shelters and sign poles with service information and Stop ID numbers
- ADA-compliant landings and curb ramps
- bus stop re-spacing and curb extensions
- better pedestrian access
- traffic signal priority
- bus-only lanes
As of November 29, 2009, we have temporarily reduced frequency on some Frequent Service lines during mid-day, evenings and weekends, due to a budget shortfall. As a result, 15-minute service frequency is provided during the weekday morning and afternoon rush hour only. We plan to restore service frequency as the economy recovers.
