Portland, Or. – Installation of switches and tracks in the Lloyd District will disrupt the entire MAX light rail system for the next two weeks. It will mean fewer trains on special schedules and will result in crowded rail cars. The work will wrap up on August 17th.
Tri Met says riders should plan an extra 35 to 45 minutes for their commute or find another way to get to their destination.
Top five tips for TriMet riders
Go to trimet.org/planner to view schedules for MAX lines between Aug. 4 and Aug. 17, and plan an extra 30 to 45 minutes for trips during that time.
Alter trips to avoid the main commuting hours, if possible. If not, consider using TriMet’s regular bus service or the Portland Streetcar. Carpool, bike, walk or try a scooter. Work from home if possible or use other transportation.
