Our First Line Across the Fremont Bridge

Feb 15, 2019

Northwest Portland has traffic and parking problems. If you live or travel in the area, you know this all too well.

That’s why, starting March 3, we’re taking advantage of a key connection to Northwest Portland that previously had no transit service: the Fremont Bridge. Soon, a trip that would have taken at least an hour — say, from NE 50th & Fremont to Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital on NW 23rd — will be nearly twice as quick.

Trips between Northeast and Northwest Portland will be provided by a revamped Line 24-Fremont/NW 18th. The route, which currently runs between Gateway Transit Center and Legacy Emanuel Hospital on N Vancouver Ave, is being extended to cross the Fremont Bridge and run along NW 18th and 19th avenues to Providence Park.

That’s not the only thing changing this spring. We’re also improving service between Clackamas Town Center and Oregon City with the addition of a new line, 31-Webster Rd, and a streamlined route for Line 79-Clackamas/Oregon City.

Ask TriMet: Do I Have To Tap Every Time I Board?

Short answer: Yes. Tapping the Hop reader every time you board transit not only validates your fare, it also acts as your proof of payment — so when you tap again within that first 2 ½-hour window, or when you have already earned a day or month pass, you won’t be...

What We’ve Learned From our Electric Bus Pilot So Far

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...
