TriMet annouces new line serving Beaverton/Tigard
TriMet has announced spring improvements to its newest bus line, which is expected to benefit Beaverton and Tigard residents alike.
The new line, Line 42-Denney/Hall will bring new connections to three of Washington County's transit hubs, according to Tia York, public information officer in TriMet Public Affairs.
