We made it into WW's worldwide headquarters today, thanks to TriMet
bus #77. If you're looking to get around, here's the latest (below this video that might make you consider the wisdom of not driving
) on what mass transit is running and what isn't, according to this update from TriMet:
MAX TRAINS ARE OPERATING BETWEEN HILLSBORO AND GRESHAM AREA. TRAINS
OPERATING EVERY 15 MINUTES. HOWEVER, THERE WERE SOME GAPS IN SERVICE IN THE
PAST HOUR, AND IT WILL TAKE UNTIL AROUND 1 P.M. TO GET THE SERVICE BACK TO
THE 15-MINUTE FREQUENCY.
MAX BLUE LINE TRACKS IN THE GRESHAM AREA ARE NOW BEING CLEARED WITH PLANS TO
OPEN THE LAST THREE GRESHAM STATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE LAST THREE
STATIONS ARE BETWEEN RUBY JUNCTION/E 197TH AVE AND CLEVELAND AVE STATIONS.
TRIMET IS ADDING MORE SHUTTLE BUSES BETWEEN THE GATEWAY TRANSIT CENTER AND
THE AIRPORT DUE TO HEAVY RIDERSHIP DEMANDS. CREWS ARE STILL WORKING TO OPEN
THE RED LINE BETWEEN GATEWAY AND PDX LATER TODAY.
MAX SHUTTLE BUSES ARE RUNNING EVERY 15-20 MINUTES.
BUSES -- EFFECTIVE AT NOON TODAY
Due to unprecedented weather conditions, TriMet is operating reduced service
for the remainder of the day. In order to provide the best service possible,
we will operate Frequent Service lines and routes operating on passable
streets. These routes are on priority streets and supported by our PDOT and
ODOT partners. Visit trimet.org or call 503-238-RIDE (7433) for specifics.
Below are the lines that are in service as of 12 noon:
6-Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
8-NE 15th Ave

TRIMET'S 503-238-RIDE PHONE CENTER IS EXTENDING HOURS UNTIL 6:30 P.M. TO
ASSIST RIDERS WITH TRIP PLANNING. FIELD OPERATIONS STAFF WILL CHECK RECENT
CANCELED ROUTES TO ENSURE RIDERS ARE NOT WAITING FOR SERVICE. THEY WILL
ASSIST THE RIDERS TO GET TO THEIR DESTINATION.
