Riding transit at night


The tree leaves may not be gold, but it definitely feels like autumn. The days are shorter, the air is cooler. And then there's the rain...

TriMet has some tips for riding the bus at night:

  • -Try to wear light colored clothing
  • -Stand up when your bus approaches so that you're more visible.
  • -If you have a mobile phone, flashlight or anything bright, wave it so that the bus operator can more easily see you.
  • -If you are riding between 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., you can request to be let off anywhere along the bus route, not just at designated stops.
