TriMet just released an updated fact sheet about its bus and rail system. Here are some quick facts:
- Weekly ridership on bus and MAX has increased for 20 consecutive years, outpacing population growth for more than a decade;
- MAX carries 26% of afternoon rush hour commuters from the Banfield freeway/I-84 and Sunset Highway corridors;
- 71% of TriMet riders are "choice riders" who own a car but chose to use transit for that trip.
