Better Red

A map of the service improvements planned in TriMet's Better Red Project.

Full MAX service was scheduled to resume on TriMet after a three-week disruption on Sunday, May 7.

The disruption was necessary for rail work on the Red Line, which also disrupted service on the Blue and Green lines. The project included track tie-in and other upgrades near the Gateway Transit Center, as well as track maintenance, tie replacement, station cleaning and more between Gateway and NE 7th Ave.

“I am a community journalist because that is where the greatest need is. There are many sources of information and opinion about international and national issues. But most people are more affected by what happens in their local communities. That is where they live, work and shop. That is where their children go to school. That is where their elected officials, business owners and labor leaders are most accessible. And that is why people need the most current information what is happening — or, more importantly, what is going to happen — in their communities. Providing accurate and up-to-date information that people need to make well-informed decisions on the issues they care about is what community journalism is all about.”
