As the nights get longer, TriMet’s Night Stop program makes wintertime travel safe and convenient.
During the winter months, TriMet bus operators can stop to let you off anywhere along the route outside of Downtown and the Lloyd District.
Just ask your bus operator a block or two ahead of your destination whether she or he can let you off at a non-designated stop location. If the operator believes it can be done safely, they will stop at your requested location.
Whether it’s morning or night, winter makes it difficult to be seen. When waiting at the bus stop, TriMet offers these tips:
- Wave as the bus approaches.
- Use a reflector, safety strobe light, small flashlight or cell phone display light to alert the operator as the bus approaches. Some mobile devices and apps have a strobe or light feature for this purpose.
- Please, DO NOT shine lights in operators’ eyes.
