How many employees in Lloyd have a Universal Pass (Annual transit sticker/card) through their employer?
A) Approximately 2,000
B) Approximately 5,000
C) Approximately 10,000
WHAT IS IT? Lloyd Universal Pass is a program through which employers provide an annual transit pass to each of their qualified employees for about one-third the cost of a regular TriMet monthly or annual pass. The Universal Pass consists of a serial-numbered sticker affixed to a photo ID, and allows the holder one year of unlimited riding on virtually all public transportation in the Portland metro area.
You're invited to celebrate the completion of the I-5 Southbound Off-Ramp at North Broadway Project!

This multi-modal project - part of the future N/NE Quadrant plan - is the first step in addressing safety improvements in the Rose Quarter area.
Please allow time for parking. Bicycle racks available. Also consider carpooling or using public transportation.

Rose Quarter Construction. We are now less than one month away from the Rose Quarter MAX Improvements project. This week, TriMet’s communications staff began their efforts to inform riders and the public about the project and necessary service disruption. From the start of service on Sunday, August 21 through end of service on Saturday, September 3, MAX Blue, Green and Red Lines will be disrupted and all MAX lines will have reduced frequency.
Learn specific service details and view an animated description of the adjustments at trimet.org/rosequarter.
Three stations on NE Holladay will close and shuttle buses will run between Interstate/Rose Quarter and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave stations. Because of the location, length of the closure and sidewalk/crosswalk closures, the majority of riders will need to use the shuttle buses, which creates a bigger impact on them than during the 1st Avenue project in May. TriMet is adding a second shuttle bus operation between North Portland and the Portland airport. From Beaverton, Red Line trains will cross the Willamette River and serve the Interstate/Rose Quarter station before serving stations on the Yellow alignment. At Kenton/N Denver Ave Station, riders can transfer to a direct shuttle bus to the airport. The shuttles also run from the airport to Kenton for those heading to the west side from the airport. With tourism and Port of Portland employment an important part of the local economy, service planning staff worked diligently to determine the most reliable route for the shuttle service that will be consistent throughout the day. The agency asked for riders’ and Kenton neighbors’ patience as the agency provides this vital link during the two-week period.
At the Rose Quarter, just east of the MAX station, crews will replace switches and improve the track bed east. Rails into the old trolley barn will be removed and crews will re-align the rails running into the station. Crews also will upgrade the signal system servicing the transit center. This work will increase MAX reliability and help keep trains running on time. Crews have been working on portions of the project since the beginning of June, getting everything done that can be, before the significant service disruption is necessary. During the two-week disruption TriMet encourages riders to alter their trips to avoid the main commuting hours, use TriMet bus service or Portland Streetcar, work from home, carpool, bike or use other transportation.
Thank you for your patience during these construction related service impacts.
Come look around the Transportation Fair this Tuesday, July 19, at Lloyd's 1201 Building and learn about active transportation options. Get free walk/bike maps, safety lights and more. See you there in the main lobby!
Sunday, May 8 - Saturday, May 21, Blue and Red Line trains will be detoured off 1st Avenue in Portland City Center, and run on the Transit Mall along 5th and 6th avenues. Shuttle buses will serve stops near 1st Avenue.
On the westside, only the Blue Line will run between Hillsboro and Library/Galleria MAX stations.
Green Line trains will run only between Rose Quarter Transit Center and Clackamas Town Center.
MAX System Reliability Improvements
TriMet is making much-needed improvements to MAX tracks, switches and equipment to create a smoother ride and improve on-time performance. The work along 1st Avenue is one of four major projects slated for 2016 and 2017. Each project is complex and requires a service disruption lasting several weeks. Our crews will be combining work as much as possible to reduce the impact on riders. TriMet knows it will be an inconvenience for many of you and appreciate your patience as they make your MAX ride better. Get information at trimet.org/maximprovements.
Tips for Riders
- All MAX lines will run on reduced frequencies. Expect crowding throughout the day, especially during rush hour.
- Allow at least an extra 30-45 minutes for your trip.
- Consider adjusting your commute to avoid the crowds during rush hour (7-9AM and 4-6PM)
- When possible, consider using regular bus service or alternate transportation.
- Shuttle buses will run about every 5 minutes most of the day.
- Don't worry about showing your fare to shuttle bus operators.
During the project, room for bikes onboard MAX will be very limited due to reduced frequency on all lines and crowds. To prevent extended delays, either cycle your entire way, park your bike at a station, or leave your bike at home during these 2 weeks.
TriMet is holding a public hearing for riders to give feedback and share thoughts about policy updates having to do with the upcoming Hop Fastpass, scheduled to open next year.
Some policy updates paving the way for Hop Fastpass:
- Stored value and pay-as-you-go passes. You'll be able to pay your way toward a 1-Month Pass, one day at a time. You don't have to pay for a pass in advance, and you'll never pay for a ride you don't take. And at the end of the month, any balance in your account will roll over to the next month. All fares will be the same price as today.
- $3 card fee and $5 minimum load. Register online or by phone, then enjoy benefits like pay-as-you-go passes and lost-card protection. Add value online, using the upcoming Hop Fastpass app, over the phone or in person at any of 500 local retailer. To kick things off TriMet will be giving out thousands of free cards to riders, social service agencies and schools.
- More ways to pay. Use contactless bank cards or services like Apple Pay and Android Pay to purchase fares.
- Your card is your fare. Simply tap your Hop Fastpass card every time you board the bus, train or streetcar.
- LIFT fares. Hop Fastpass will support LIFT rides after TriMet has successfully launched the system on fixed-route vehicles. LIFT riders will be able to use Hop to purchase fares at the same price as today: $2.50 for a single ticket or $74 for a 1-Month Pass.
If you have thoughts about these updates, please attend the public hearing to give your feedback in person (Portland Auditorium Building, Second Floor, 1120 SW 5th Avenue).
If you can't make it to the hearing, send TriMet an email with your feedback or give them a call. You can weigh in through February 16, 2016.

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, some bus lines will run on Saturday schedules and service will be canceled on others. Many bus lines, MAX, WES and Portland Streetcar will run on regular weekday schedules.
The TriMet Ticket Office and the Customer Service office at 503-238-RIDE (7433) will be closed on the holiday.
TriMet carries more riders on Martin Luther King Jr. Day than any other holiday, so more service will be provided than on a typical holiday schedule.
TriMet will be adjusting schedules for several buses and MAX Orange Line in order to improve service and increase reliability - meaning more on-time vehicles and less impact from traffic.
Schedules for bus lines 4, 44, 62, 84 and 291 (Orange Night Bus) will be adjusted.
More detailed information here.
TriMet continues to invest in the safety of its riders and neighbors with improvements to street crossings near MAX stations and rail lines. Work will soon begin near the NE 7th Avenue MAX Station.
November 23, 2015 through February 11, 2016 (subject to change) the pedestrian crossing at the east end of the NE 7th Avenue MAX station, running between the Oregon Square park and Hassalo on Eighth, will be closed for construction while crews construct safety enhancements.
The NE 7th Avenue MAX Station will remain open during construction. Please use the street crossing at 7th Avenue or 9th Avenue. Watch for detour signs around construction zones.
You may hear noise from saw cutting, jack hammering and excavation. Work hours are 7am-6pm, Monday-Saturday. NE Holladay Street between NE 7th and NE 9th will stay open the majority of the time and will only be closed when absolutely necessary.
