Leave Something Behind? Check Lost & Found
If you ever forget something on a bus or train, don’t despair. Found items are constantly being turned in to our Lost & Found department, and there’s a good chance we’ve got what you’re looking for.
Last year, we processed 24,000 lost items. Here’s what we saw most often:
- ID cards
- Personal items/mementos
Everything we find is sent to our headquarters on SE 17th Avenue, where Lost & Found staff sorts and tags items. Claimed items are held for at least 14 days, though we’re happy to work with you if you need more time. Unclaimed items are eventually donated to charity (or destroyed if they contain personal information).

So if you think you left something on one of our buses or trains, give us a call at 503-238-RIDE (7433) or report it online. We’d love to reunite you with your stuff.

A curtain dropped and the cameras flashed. For a day, a bus was the star. The months since have been less glamorous but far more important. Last April, we publically introduced our first zero-emission battery-electric bus, powered by 100% clean wind energy from...
