TriMet Downtown 6th Ave

Reimagining Public Safety & Security on Transit

TriMet is committed to ensuring a safe, welcoming and equitable transit system for everyone. On July 1, 2020, we redirected $1.8 million in police contracts and additional funding to explore new community-based services to expand our safety approach. We are working with our community to reimagine a better transit system that is fair and free of bias while addressing the needs of our riders and employees to feel safe.


The Reimagine Public Safety Advisory Committee is tasked with providing feedback, insight and guidance to TriMet as it designs, implements and evaluates the effectiveness of new public safety programs as recommended by the Reimagine Public Safety initiative adopted by TriMet board in November of 2020.
