Line 72 hybrid buses temporarily out of service to install safety panels
The safety of TriMet’s bus operators and riders is paramount. Because of COVID-19, we’re temporarily removing from service our diesel-electric hybrid buses from Line 72-Killingsworthh/82nd to install safety panels for our bus operators. Installing these on the hybrid buses will help us comply with social-distancing guidelines as well as keep our operators and riders safe during the public-health crisis.
These panels are made of metal frames and safety glass and were already installed on about half of our bus fleet. In March, TriMet authorized $2.7 million to retrofit the rest of our bus fleet with these panels as an added safety measure against COVID-19. The hybrid buses will be among the first on the installation schedule, expected to begin in late May when the initial panel shipments arrive. We expect to finish safety panel installation of the hybrid buses sometime in June, after which we’ll return the hybrid buses to service on Line 72. The entire fleet will have operator safety barriers by the end of July. This is just a temporary change in bus type, there are no changes to the Line 72 schedule implemented April 5th.
