What about Harrison Street

Our new facility presents new opportunities to do our part for security. Here’s a summary of how TriMet’s existing policies and practices are expected to work at Harrison Square.

  • Building access: The 1st floor main lobby is open 6 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Friday. Afterhours access: Harrison Square employees have 24-7 badge access from level P2, near 1st Ave.
  • Badge access is based on business need. Your badge is programmed to give you 24-7 access to your own work area. Whether—and when—you have access to other locations depends on the nature of your work. Contact Kathy Daniels with any requests to adjust your badge access: or 503-962-(employees can not access this Trimet facility. A first for Trimet keeping their own employees out of their own building)
  • From 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, all Harrison Square TriMet staff have badge access to the entire 2nd floor, and these portions of the 3rd floor: East wing; south side of west wing.
  • Badge access to the west wing of the 3rd floor is limited to staff from HR and Payroll, and a limited number of other authorized employees. Use phone or email to do your business with HR and Payroll, or to arrange an in-person meeting.
Benefits: 503-962- or
Linda Elliot: 503-962-
Shawna Huffman: 503-962
Lonnie Jones: 503-962-
Jim Yazzolino: 503-962-
  • Employees and contractors must wear their badges visibly. (HR policy 428)
  • Non-employee visitors must be accompanied by an employee, and wear a visitor badge. (HR 428) Employees from other facilities do not need a visitors badge but must be met and accompanied by the employee they are here to see.
  • The TriMet reception desk on the 3rd floor is staffed 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Visitors need to report to the reception desk for their visitors badge and an escort to their destination.
  • If you see a un-badged, un-escorted stranger in the workplace, politely ask, Can I help? What is the nature of your business? Who are you here to see? Who are you? Accompany the person to the reception desk or to the employee they are here to see.
  • Contact Kathy Daniels to request badge access (24/7) to the bike cage on level P2. Within the cage, you’re encouraged to lock your bike and the gear locker. Space is on a first-come, first-served basis. There are additional racks in several locations outside the building.
  • Security guards patrol Harrison Square outside of normal business hours.
