Good news for commuters
People who take public transit will have some new options in the coming year. TriMet is continuing a 10-year expansion of transit throughout the Portland area with bus service improvements that will take effect by March 2018.
TriMet is working to grow its network of buses and trains with the goal of making rides smoother, safer and more reliable.
TriMet is adding three new bus lines, including one in Beaverton and Tigard. It also is increasing frequency on some lines and route changes on others. Some schedules will be adjusted to help buses stay on time.
Line 52 that runs along Farmington Road and 185th Avenue will be expanded with weekday and weekend trips to be added during the mid-day to better serve downtown Beaverton, Aloha, Willow Creek Transit Center, Tanasbourne and Portland Community College's Rock Creek Campus.
There also will be a new route along Southwest Denney Road and Hall Boulevard with a new line with service from Beaverton Transit Center to Washington Square and Tigard Transit Center via Southwest Lombard Avenue, Denney Road, Scholls Ferry Road and Hall Boulevard.
