Good News for Our Friends Who Like to Bike

Car2Go Introduces Bike N Ride

Car2Go’s bike racks allow you to take your bike along for the ride

In 2015, carsharing will allow members even greater travel flexibility as Car2Go equips half of their fleet of Smartcars with bike racks. This move, a pilot in the international company’s Portland market, will allow members to bike one way and drive home (or vice versa) or drive their bike to recreational riding areas. The introduction of bike racks, which is expected to occur sometime in early 2015, is in direct response to member requests to add racks to the fleet of vehicles located throughout the city.

travel notice

Lloyd District MAX & Bus Service Disrupted August 11-15 Due to Construction

August 11th-15th, crews will replace a MAX track switch located in the intersection of NE 11th Avenue and Holladay Street. MAX will not run between Rose Quarter/Convention Center and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX stations. The switch replacement is part of ongoing investments that ensure our system remains safe and efficient for years to come.


Your travel options:

Bus service to and from Rose Quarter Transit Center is not affected.

However, in the Lloyd Center area, Line 70-12th/33rd Ave will be detoured. The stops on NE 11th and Holladay will be closed. Temporary stops will be located on NE 9th and Holladay. The stop at NE 11th and Multnomah will also be closed. Use caution crossing NE Holladay as there will be increased bus traffic.

TriMet shuttle buses will be available to take you between stations.

Shuttles will run frequently between Rose Quarter/Convention Center MAX stations and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX Station. Additionally, shuttles will run between Interstate Rose Quarter and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX stations for Green Line riders going to or from Portland City Center. If you take a shuttle, plan ahead and allow an extra 15-30 minutes for your trip.

We encourage walking between stations, if you can.

On average, it will take you 10 minutes to walk between Rose Quarter/Convention Center MAX stations and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX Station. Follow the signs to the pedestrian route. Stay on the sidewalk on the south side of Holladay Street and obey crosswalk signals, as it is the safest and fastest route.

If you bring your bike on MAX, you should either walk or ride between stations.

It takes about 10 minutes to ride between Rose Quarter/Convention Center MAX stations and Lloyd Center/NE 11th Ave MAX Station. Shuttle buses have limited space for bikes, which may cause an additional wait. Follow the signs to the cyclist route. Use NE 11th Avenue, Multnomah Street and NE Wheeler Avenue, as it is the safest and fastest route. Please walk your bike along NE 11th Avenue and through Rose Quarter Transit Center. Obey all traffic signals along the route and use extra caution around buses. If you choose to walk your bike to the Rose Quarter area, follow the signs to the pedestrian route.

For more information, please visit the TriMet website.
