PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Minutes before Portland’s 8 p.m. curfew went into effect, TriMet suspended service to the downtown area.
The agency said it made the decision based on guidance from the Portland Police Bureau Monday afternoon. TriMet suspended MAX train and bus services in the downtown area during previous protests when the city’s curfew went into effect.
Earlier Monday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler extended a citywide curfew through the night as a response to three consecutive nights of protests.
TriMet asked riders to keep up to date on developments surrounding demonstrations that have the potential to impact service regardless of the curfew. The agency recommends riders check trimet.org/alerts, follow @trimetalerts on Twitter, or sign up for TriMet service alerts by email or text message at trimet.org/email.
Portland’s curfew lasts from 8 p.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Tuesday.
