TriMet's Frequent Service bus lines run about every 15 minutes or better most of the day on weekdays. MAX runs about every 15 minutes or better most of the day, every day. Service is less frequent in the early morning and evening.
Frequent Service lines connect the regional hubs where many riders live and work.
In addition to providing more frequency most of the day on weekdays, some 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
Starting March 3, 2014 we increased mid-day service on 10 Frequent Service bus lines to reduce wait times and transfer times for riders. All Frequent Service lines now operate about every 15 minutes or better most of the day on weekdays as part of TriMet's plan to continue to improve service on its busiest lines. In November 2009, we 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 was provided during the weekday morning and afternoon rush hour only.
