From the start of service on Sunday, August 21 through the end of service on Saturday, September 3, our partner TriMet will have crews in the field making improvements to the tracks near the Rose Quarter to improve MAX reliability. While temporarily disruptive, this work will allow for a more reliable system and a smoother ride through the area.
With Portland Streetcar's direct connections to all 5 MAX lines and nearly 70% of our riders boarding with a TriMet fare, we wanted to make sure all of our riders were aware of the upcoming disruptions to the regional service. This may also impact Portland Streetcar service as more people search for alternate ways to get around the Central City. For more information on all of the MAX service impacts and how to navigate the disruption, visit TriMet's page on the project.
