MAX riders warned about service disruptions

TriMet plans Rose Quarter work between Aug. 21 and Sept. 3.


Light-rail riders on TriMet’s Red, Green and Blue MAX lines are warned to prepare for service disruptions in the final weeks of August and the first few days of September.

Rail improvements are planned between Aug. 21 and Sept. 3 in the Rose Quarter, where the three lines share tracks. Similar work was done earlier this year downtown.

There will be delays and reduced capacity.

The Red Line connects Beaverton, downtown Portland and Portland International Airport.

The Green Line connects downtown Portland with Clackamas Town Center.

The Blue Line connects Hillsboro, downtown Portland and Gresham.

The work does not affect Orange or Yellow lines.

This work will begin at the start of service Aug. 21 and end with the close of service Sept. 3.

TriMet officials offer several alternatives to MAX riders during this period:

• Avoid riding MAX during peak commuter hours.

• Use TriMet buses or the Portland Streetcar.

• Allow for extra time to reach your destination.

• Plan your trip ahead.

• Ride your bicycle the entire route, given that MAX space for bikes will be limited.

A brochure is available from the TriMet ticket office on Pioneer Courthouse Square. Assistance can be obtained from TriMet at (503) 238-RIDE (7433).
