Portland's Next Light-Rail Line Appears Headed for Tualatin

MAX may head to shopping destinations Bridgeport Village and Cabela’s.

The next MAX stop is Bridgeport Village.

This week, a Metro project team will present the public with two big recommendations. First, it will advocate using light rail, rather than bus rapid transit, to connect downtown Portland to Tualatin.

Second, it will advise against connecting the line to Portland Community College's Sylvania campus via tunnel because it's too expensive—and the team would rather extend the line to Tualatin, home of shopping destinations Bridgeport Village and outdoor superstore Cabela's.

The project's preliminary budget is $1.8 billion.
