The transit agency hopes they will improve WES transfers in Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin and Wilsonville.

FILE PHOTO - All MAX trains originally ran east and west through Downtown Portland. TriMet has announced changes affecting many Washington County riders.

The changes take effect Sunday, Sept. 1.

MAX Blue and Red Line light-rail trains will run two minutes later to enable commuters to connect more easily with the Westside Express Service, which serves Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin and Wilsonville via the Portland & Western Railroad.

Schedule changes will affect two TriMet bus routes in Washington County.

One is Line 57, which connects the Beaverton Transit Center with Forest Grove via Tualatin Valley Highway, and has 24-hour service. The line is also designated for frequent service at 15-minute intervals.

The other is Line 50, which loops around Cedar Mill and ends at the Sunset Transit Center. The line is operated weekdays only during morning and evening rush hours.

Those two lines will also have their schedules adjusted by two minutes, TriMet says, to better line up with WES arrivals and departures.

Commuters are advised to check new schedules at trimet.org.

TriMet announced these and other changes as part of its expansion of service made possible through 2017 legislation — which, among other things, imposes a statewide payroll tax to pay for public transit projects and service.PMG FILE PHOTO - TriMet's bus schedule for Line 57, which runs between Forest Grove and Beaverton, is changing starting next week — but only by two minutes.
