TriMet: MAX trains, Portland Streetcar disrupted for needed repair work

The TriMet map shows where MAX and Portland Streetcar lines are disrupted.

Work has started on a downtown TriMet repair project that will disrupt MAX trains throughout the region until May 20. It will also impact the Portland Streetcar and increase traffic congestion in the west side of town.

"With fewer trains running, we expect them to be extremely crowded during the morning and afternoon commutes. We are asking riders to alter their trips to avoid main commuting hours, use TriMet's regular bus service, carpool, work from home if possible, bike, walk or use other options during the project," TriMet said Sunday morning.
