REVISED SERVICE CUTS PROPOSAL
Based on public comments and concerns to keep connections to jobs and other services, some of the proposed cuts have been restored, and other lines may have additional adjustments proposed. In all, about 50 bus lines are proposed to have some changes with 11 of those lines to have more significant reductions (27, 32, 45, 51, 58, 65, 73, 155, 157; changes to Line 35 and 154 will take effect in June). All MAX lines are proposed to have some changes, and TriMet is exploring potential changes to WES. Riders are encouraged to check the revised proposal online at trimet.org.

  • Eliminate select trips: eliminate select weekday trips on six lines where capacity is available (1, 51, 85, 92, 94, 99).
