May's weird TriMet service alerts

NOTE: Many of these alerts were written by dispatchers who are not expected to be language experts, may not have time to proofread, and make mistakes like all humans.  They may have many other tasks in progress at the moment, such as dealing with buses that are already stuck due to the blockage or situations elsewhere.  While those errors probably should be forgiven, they can cause confusion or problems for those who try to follow them.


Also, to whoever manages the script that edits the detours for public posting, I've been seeing a lot of "regular route right" and I'm thinking the "rt" in e.g. "reg rt" is getting incorrectly expanded separately to "right".


#54 #56 LINES 54,56: the parade is OVER!!! Return to Regular route!
[YAY!!!]

Update: We apologize for the delayed notification, but the NE 82nd Ave elevator was returned to service earlier.

#15 LINE 15 inbound: Regular route to 23rd and Thurman, continue Thurman, right 21st, right Lovejoy, left 23rd, & Regular route outbound: Regular route to 23rd and Lovejoy, right Lovejoy, left 21st, left Thurman to 23rd & Regular route UNTIL: Fire has cleared.
["continue Thurman" isn't valid for trips coming from Montgomery Park or Yeon]

The elevators at the 82nd MAX station are out of service. Maintenance has been notified.
[there is only one elevator there]

#76 Line 76 to Meridian Park: 8-11am.

#14 #15 Line 14/15: Back to regular route right Downtown, the march is over :)
[:) indeed]

#15 Line 15 Thurman buses. Regular route to Thurman and 27th, right 27th, left Upshur, left 28th, left Thurman to Eastbound. layover and wait out time there. Do not go up the hill. until further notice.

#87 Line 87. to GAteway. Regular route to Airport way and 122nd, left 122nd, right Sandy to 105th and regular route until further notice.
["right Sandy" should really be "veer right ramp towards Sandy, veer right again, left Sandy" as you can't turn directly onto Sandy]

#15 Due to a data processing error, stop 5394 (9200 Block SE Stark) will not display correctly in TransitTracker or the trip planner until June 7. To get an idea of when your bus will arrive use the following stop (Stark & 90th, ID 5503).

#35 Line 35: BACK TO Regular route BOTH DIRECTIONS.
#35 Line 35 To U of P:BACK TO Regular route BOTH DIRECTIONS.
[one message will do]

#9 #17 Line 9,17:Regular route right 5th and Lincoln, left Lincoln, right 1st, left Arthur and regular route right Until Clear.
[that is the regular route for Line 17, I'm pretty sure this was sent after]
#17 Line 17 buses are on regular route, meant for the 19's not the 17's, thank you.

#72 Line 72 to Swan Island: Regular route to 82nd and Washington, left Washington, left 88th, left Stark, right 82nd and regular route until clear.
[should be "right Washington", was immediately corrected]

#8 Line 8 Part 1st |6:45am-11:00am Message 1st of 2nd To Dekum & Durham: Regular route to Everett & 3rd right 3rd left Burnside - Across the Burnside Bridge left Grand right Multnomah.
#8 Line 8 Part 1st |6:45am-11:00am Message 2nd of 2nd To Dekum & Durham left 16th into 15th left Knott right MLK right Prescott left 15th And regular route.

#52 Line 52 PCC Rock:Regular route right 185th and TVHWY, right TVHwy, left 170th, left Alexander, right 185th and eg right Line 52 to Beaverton Transit Center:Regular route right to 185th and Alexander, left Alexander, right 170th, right TVHwy, left 185th and regular route right Until Clear.
[it seems they could have used 178th instead of going all the way to 170th, saving 16 blocks each trip]

#88 Line 88 To Willow Crk:Regular route right to 198th and Johnson, left Johnson, right 203rd, right Rock Road, left 198th and regular route right until further notice 88th To Beaverton Transit Center:Regular route right to 198th and Rock Road, right Rock Road, left 203rd, left Johnson, right 198th and regular route right until further notice.
[198th in the first two instances should really be 197th, also the route actually jogs on Rock Road there]

#83 Line 83 operator, the Washington Park Shuttle is regular route Tri-met Fare and it is also posted at the service stops. Please charge accordingly, Thank you, Wendy.

#12 Line 12 Parkrose to Portland: Regular route to Sandy and 33rd then left 33rd, right Glisan, right 31st, left Sandy & regular route until clear.
#12 Line 12 to Parkrose: Regular route to Sandy and 31st then left 31st, continue Wasco, right 33rd, left Sandy and regular route until clear.
[it would be better if buses to Portland could use the same routing as to Parkrose (but turn directly onto Wasco from Sandy) as it is much shorter than going down to Glisan]

#52 Line 52 to PCC. Regular route to Farmington and Kinnaman, right Kinnaman, right 185th and regular route Kill time on 185th if this makes you early.

#19 Line 19. Construction closed signs at 32nd and Knapp are for autos only. Buses can go thru.

#58 Line 58 inbound Use Market st Exit right 12th right Columbia and follow outbound detour.
#58 Line 58 outbound regular route Columbia and 18th continue Columbia right 13th right Clay to Hwy 26 outbound and regular route.
[should be "left 12th" and note that the Market St exit is from Sunset Hwy, also it's not possible to directly follow the outbound detour as the inbound detour bypasses both 18th and 13th; I'm guessing buses were maybe supposed to make a full loop on Columbia and Jefferson, if so outbound it should start "to Jefferson and 18th, left around Collins Circle into Columbia]

#20 Line 20 Westbound: the Regular route STOP at 60th is closed AND the temporary STOP has been removed also! Passengers will need to use either stop before or after. UNTIL: 3p.

#4 Due to a data processing error, stop 3976 (N Mississippi and Skidmore) will not display correctly in TransitTracker or the trip planner until further notice. To get an idea of when your bus will arrive use the previous stop (Mississippi and Mason, ID 3966).

#17 Line 17 Eastbound regular route to Holgate and 79th left 79th right Raymond right Holgate left 82nd and regular route until clear.
["right Holgate left 82nd", should be "right 82nd, left Holgate"]

#58 No service to stops between SW Columbia between 6th at 5th and SW Jefferson at 5th.
[I don't think there are any stops there, also "6th at 5th" should be "6th and 5th"]

#45 No service to stops on SW Jefferson between 1st and 5th. Please use temporary stop on Jefferson and Broadway.
[Jefferson at Broadway is a regular stop for Line 45]

#6 No service to stops between SW 3rd at Madison and SW Jefferson at Broadway.
[I believe that is just one stop, SW Jefferson between 4th & 5th, except if it is to include the stop at Jefferson and Broadway]

#6 Line 6. Regular route to 3rd and Jefferson, Continue 3rd, right Clay, right 6th, left Jefferson & Regular route temporary at Jefferson and Broadway. until further notice.
[Jefferson at Broadway is a regular stop for Line 6]

#45 Line 45. Your stops on Jefferson at 1st & 5th are closed. temporary at Jefferson and Broadway. until further notice.
[Jefferson at Broadway is a regular stop for Line 45]

MAX service is now severely impacted due to police activity involving the May Day marches and protests in Portland. MAX trains are unable to run through Portland City Center. Expect significant delays. Shuttle bus service are not possible as buses are also significantly delayed.
