Homeowner/Rental Assistance


  • TriMet service will continue during the unprecedented challenges facing the world and our community to stop the spread of COVID-19. However, beginning April 5, TriMet will adjust schedules to reflect the reality of dropping ridership, while preserving safety and service coverage across the tri-county area.
  • TriMet will be limiting how many people are allowed on buses starting the evening of April 2. No more than 10-15 riders can be on a bus at one time — 10 individuals, or up to 15 if people are riding together (such as couples or parents with children). This is to make sure people have enough space to spread out and to prevent overcrowding. If a bus has 10-15 riders, it will not pick up new passengers until someone exits.
