The $175 million Division Transit Project laid the foundation for TriMet FX™ — Frequent Express — a faster, higher-tier, high-capacity bus service for the Division Street corridor between Gresham, East Portland, Southeast Portland and Downtown Portland. Service opened on Sunday, Sept. 18, with TriMet’s new, 60-foot, articulated buses serving dozens of newly constructed stations throughout the route.
The 15-mile project improved bus service in this corridor by providing:
Longer buses with room for 60 percent more riders
Multiple-door boarding for briefer stops
Expanded bus stations with amenities such as weather protection
Stations located where rider demand is greatest — minimizing travel times while providing important transit connections
Next-generation signals that prioritize buses for faster trips
Buses arriving every 12 minutes
