Trimet announces service cuts due to MLR

There are some surprising things here.

Doubling service on 28+34  line:
  • Maintain existing days and hours of service (weekdays about 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.).
  • Increase frequency from about every 70 minutes to about every 35 minutes.
  • The proposed routing change occurs into downtown Milwaukie; the line then becomes Line 34-River Rd with regular routing service to Gladstone and Oregon City.
  • Riders can transfer to the MAX Orange Line at SE Tacoma St/Johnson Creek or Milwaukie/Main St stations.
Line 31-32-33 will no longer go downtown:(this is a drag for riders)

 Maintain existing frequency, days and hours of service.
The proposed routing changes would end service in downtown Milwaukie.Riders can transfer to the MAX Orange Line at SE Park Ave and Milwaukie/Main St stations.

And the biggest surprise at all is that they are not eliminating the 99 line!

Maintain existing frequency for the weekday rush-hour only service
The proposal would add service from downtown to the south during the morning commute and from the south to downtown during the afternoon commute. Service in both directions during weekday rush hour runs between about 5:30 a.m. until 8:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.
The proposed routing change would shift the line from the Ross Island Bridge to the Sellwood Bridge with new limited stops on Tacoma Street, Macadam Blvd, Corbett Street and then existing route on the downtown Transit Mall. The move would occur after the Sellwood Bridge construction could accommodate bus traffic. In the meantime, potential interim routing is being reviewed.

Curious what the guy who's making all these bumper stickers has done with the money he's made from them?
