TriMet Proposing 2 Route Changes Affecting Eliot

As a part of TriMet’s 2018 proposals, there are changes planned to the TriMet’s #4 and #24 buses through the Eliot neighborhood.

Line #4 will be split.  This will have the effect of requiring transfers to get to SE Portland.

Line 24 will be extended to NW Portland.  This will be a huge asset for our neighborhood and additionally it will make the #24 a much more useful line.  Currently, the line runs east from Eliot along NE Fremont to Gateway TC.  With this new connection, Eliot will have useful connections in both directions.  Additionally, more useful lines tend to attract more ridership which may help TriMet upgrade #24 from once an hour to be a more frequent and useful line.
