2023–24 Transit Service Changes

Welcome aboard! Based on community feedback, we’re excited to begin implementing the Forward Together Revised Service Concept to focus on ridership and improve connections to destinations for people with low and limited incomes.

While the full implementation of Forward Together will take 3–6 years, dependent on our recovery from the ongoing operator shortage, we’re looking forward to getting started with this year’s Annual Service Plan.

Our Annual Service Plan proposes to:

  • Add 5 new Frequent Service lines with buses arriving every 15 minutes for most of the day, every day
  • Improve service on 5 lines with buses arriving every 30 minutes or better for more of the day, every day
  • Discontinue service on low-ridership stops and lines
  • And more! See below for maps and more details

Riders will see the first service changes to our bus system as early as September 2023.

 

Service changes

Frequency, route changes and discontinued line

19 Woodstock/Glisan

We’d like to improve Line 19 service with buses arriving every 30 minutes for more hours of the day, every day.

We’re also proposing to have buses use the Tilikum Crossing to improve reliability. And, we’re proposing to discontinue service on the SE 28th/Rex/32nd loop for faster trips.

Frequency and route changes

35 Macadam/Greeley 36 South Shore

We’d like to improve Line 35 service with buses arriving every 30 minutes for more hours of the day, every day.

And trips between Johns Landing and Lake Oswego would alternate between Highway 43 (Riverside) and Taylor’s Ferry and Terwilliger to provide service to Lewis & Clark College and South Burlingame.

We’re also proposing to discontinue Line 36 due to low ridership.

Frequency and route changes

39 Lewis and Clark

We’re proposing to reduce service to only run buses during peak travel time for Wells High School students.

And we’d extend Line 39 to serve the Arnold Creek neighborhood and Barbur Transit Center via Boones Ferry, Stephenson, 35th, and Huber, instead of serving Palatine Hill and Lewis & Clark College.

Frequency and route changes

48 Cornell 52 Farmington/185th 62 Murray Blvd

We’d like to upgrade Lines 48 and 52 to Frequent Service with buses arriving every 15 minutes for most hours of the day, every day.

We’re also proposing for Line 48 to stay on Barnes for faster trips. Line 62 buses would move to Cedar Hills and Cornell to replace Line 48 service.

Route changes and discontinued line

51 Vista 55 Hamilton

We’re proposing to discontinue Line 55 due to low ridership and nearby service on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.

And we’re proposing to extend Line 51 service on SW Dosch Road via Sunset to Wells High School and SW Barbur and Bertha. Line 51 would end at Goose Hollow and no longer go to SW 2nd.

Route changes

70 12th/NE 33rd Ave

This change would take effect in May of 2023

We’re proposing to change the Line 70 route to bring more bus service closer to Cleveland High School via SE 21st Avenue and to avoid delays at the 11th/12th Ave rail crossing. And, we’re proposing running buses on Milwaukie Avenue in Sellwood for more direct service to Milwaukie.

Frequency and route changes

77 Broadway/Halsey 87 Airport Way/181st

We’d like to upgrade Lines 77 and 87 to Frequent Service with buses arriving every 15 minutes for most hours of the day, every day.

We’re proposing to route Line 77 buses on NE MLK/Grand to serve more of the Broadway-Weidler corridor, and we’d like for some of the buses to run to the Troutdale-Reynolds Industrial Park.

Frequency and route changes

94 Pacific Hwy/Sherwood

We’re proposing to remove Line 94 service between Tigard and Portland. Line 12 will continue to serve that area.

We’d like to improve Line 94 service between Tigard and Sherwood with buses arriving every 20 minutes for more hours of the day, every day.

Route changes

99 Macadam/McLoughlin

We’re proposing to move southbound buses to S. Moody through the South Waterfront to reduce delays and simplify the route.

Line 99 route changes map

Frequency, route changes and discontinued lines

Southwest route changes
(43, 54, 56, 61, 64, 65, 66, 68)

We’re proposing to discontinue Lines 61, 64, 65, 66 and 68 which would be replaced by changes to service on Lines 43, 54 and 56 and current service on Lines 8, 9 and MAX. We’d like to improve Line 43 and 56 service with buses arriving every 30 minutes for more hours of the day, every day.

We’re also proposing to route Line 43 between Tigard and OHSU and discontinue service on S. Corbett, due to nearby service on Lines 12, 35 and 99. And to route Line 56 to OHSU and discontinue service on SW Barbur due to nearby service on Lines 12 and 44.

Lines 43 and 56 would combine to provide 15-minute service from Hillsdale to OHSU and with a transfer from Frequent Service 54 would create an all-day replacement for Line 61.

We’d like to upgrade Line 54 to Frequent Service with buses arriving every 15 minutes for most hours of the day, every day.
