Proposed Bus Service Improvements in 2018–19

We’re continuing a 10-year expansion of transit throughout the Portland area with proposed bus improvements for 2018 and 2019.

Take a look at these proposed changes and let us know what you think by December 31:

4Line 4-Division/Fessenden splits into two routes

View proposed map

Line 4-Division/Fessenden is currently one of our longest and busiest routes. In an effort to keep buses on time, we’re proposing splitting the line into two routes: one running between Gresham Transit Center and Downtown Portland and the other between Downtown Portland and St. Johns. To make transfers easy, both routes would serve stops on the Transit Mall along 5th and 6th avenues in Downtown Portland.

20Line 20-Burnside/Stark gets more frequent buses and all-night service

We’re considering running buses 24 hours a day between Beaverton Transit Center and Gresham on Line 20 to accommodate earlier and later work shifts. We would also like to increase frequency between Beaverton TC and Downtown Portland. (The last time TriMet provided all-night service was 1986!)

24Line 24-Fremont extends to Downtown Portland

View proposed map

In response to feedback from the community, we’re proposing an extension of Line 24 that crosses the Fremont Bridge and connects with MAX at Goose Hollow. The new portion of the route would use 18th and 19th avenues between NW Thurman Street and SW Jefferson Street. Buses would no longer serve Vancouver and Williams avenues south of N Cook Street. We’re also considering adding more frequent service during the week, and potentially adding weekend service.

57Line 57-TV Hwy/Forest Grove gets all-night service

We are considering introducing 24-hour service on Line 57.

6161-Marquam Hill/Beaverton gets expanded hours of operation

We’re proposing earlier and later trips to OHSU and beyond to accommodate earlier and later work shifts.

6464-Marquam Hill/Tigard gets expanded hours of operation

We’re proposing earlier and later trips to OHSU and beyond to accommodate earlier and later work shifts.

6666-Marquam Hill/Hollywood gets expanded hours of operation

We’re proposing earlier and later trips to OHSU and beyond to accommodate earlier and later work shifts.

6868-Marquam Hill/Collins Circle gets expanded hours of operation

We’re proposing earlier and later trips to OHSU and beyond to accommodate earlier and later work shifts.

7373-122nd Ave gets more frequent buses

We’re proposing increased frequency on Line 73 to help get riders to jobs, shopping and recreation.

79Line 79-Clackamas/Oregon City gets a more direct route

View proposed map

In order to streamline the trip between Clackamas Town Center and Oregon City Transit Center, we’re proposing a more direct route for Line 79 along SE 82nd Avenue, I-205, and Washington Street.

*A new bus line on Webster Road

View proposed map

To accompany more direct service on Line 79, we are considering a new bus line running between Clackamas Town Center and Oregon City Transit Center. This new route would follow SE Thiessen Road, Webster Road, Arlington Street, and McLoughlin Boulevard.

81Line 81-Kane/257th gets more frequent buses

Line 81 begins serving the Troutdale Airport Business Park next spring, and we’d like to increase frequency by March 2019 to better serve businesses in the area.

96Line 96-Tualatin/I-5 gets more trips

We’re proposing introducing mid-day service on Line 96 between Tualatin and Downtown Portland in response to community feedback.

*All-night bus service to Portland International Airport

View proposed map (Option 1) View proposed map (Option 2)

To accommodate earlier and later work shifts we’re proposing a new all-night bus line providing 24-hour transit service to Portland International Airport. We are considering two options, both of which connect proposed all-night service on Line 20-Burnside/Stark and the airport. One option would use 102nd Avenue, providing connections to late-night MAX and Line 12 trips, as well as Gateway and Parkrose at a lesser frequency. Another option would use 82nd Avenue, providing connections to late-night MAX, Line 12, and Line 72 trips at a greater frequency.
