TriMet reroutes buses at Clackamas Town Center during holidays
Bus lines serving Clackamas Town Center will be detoured temporarily on seven busy shopping days, beginning on the afternoon of Black Friday.
TriMet hopes to decrease traffic delays by detouring the 10 bus lines that normally travel through the mall's parking lot to reach the Clackamas Town Center Transit Center. This is the sixth straight year TriMet officials have worked with the mall to make these adjustments.
Between 1 and 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, the eastbound Clackamas Town Center mall bus stop (ID 12921) will be closed. It also will be shut between 1 and 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15-16; Friday through Sunday, Dec. 21-23; and Wednesday, Dec. 26.
During these times, eastbound buses will serve a temporary stop on Driveway No. 3, which runs between the movie theater and Monterey Avenue. Westbound buses will serve a temporary stop at the Fuller Road MAX Station before continuing to the Clackamas Town Center mall stop (ID 12922). Extra TriMet staff plan to be onsite to help with direction and answer questions.
TriMet officials say that during these service-adjustment periods, commuters should allow at least 15 extra minutes to make connections and transfers. Remember to dress for the weather, as the temporary stops do not have shelters.
The detour does not affect MAX Green Line service. The Clackamas Town Center Transit Center MAX Station will remain open.
