The shuttle runs between the Cully neighborhood, airport industrial area and the Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center.

COURTESY MAP: MULTNOMAH COUNTY - A map shows the route of Multnomah County's new ACCESS Shuttle service.Multnomah County has launched a new free shuttle service in an area that previously didn't have any public transit south of Portland International Airport.

County officials say the service, called the ACCESS Shuttle, will provide a needed transit connection for people who work in the area, where there's a high number of employers.

The shuttle serves areas between Northeast Portland's Cully neighborhood, the airport industrial area and TriMet's Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center.

It runs on an hourly schedule between 5:30 and 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The shuttle's route begins at Northeast Cully Boulevard and Prescott Street and heads north to Northeast Cornfoot Road. From Cornfoot Road, it moves east to Northeast Alderwood Road and continues to Northeast 105th Avenue. The shuttle then goes south to Northeast Prescott Street and then runs east before turning onto Northeast Sandy Boulevard and stopping at the Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center.

The route provides access to company facilities, including those of Boeing, UPS, U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, DHL, IKEA and others.

Riders can make connections to and from the MAX Red Line as well as TriMet bus lines 12, 71, 72, 73 and 87 and C-TRAN Line 65.

This new shuttle is a partnership between the city of Portland, the Port of Portland and Multnomah County.

It's one of three Multnomah County shuttles funded through Oregon's Transportation Improvement Fund. The county allocated about $1.6 million for the shuttles in its recently approved budget.

The ACCESS Shuttle will be operated by ecoShuttle, which already operates Multnomah County's other shuttles.

Officials expect to place signs for the ACCESS Shuttle along its route in the coming weeks.
