More Blue and Red line MAX stations are getting arrival information screens this year, thanks in part to a $180,000 grant from the Federal Transit Administration.

The digital displays, which are already in place at Green Line stations and on the Downtown Portland Transit Mall, show TransitTracker arrival countdowns for buses and trains, as well as service alerts in the case of a major delay or disruption.

Later this summer, crews will begin placing the first of 58 new screens scheduled for installation over the next year. We’re starting with Blue and Red line stations mostly on the west side, including Tuality Hospital/SE 8th, Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport, Orenco/NW 231st, Quatama/NW 205th, Willow Creek/SW 185th TC, Elmonica/SW 170th (eastbound), Merlo/SW 158th, Beaverton Creek, Millikan Way (eastbound), Beaverton TC, Goose Hollow (eastbound and westbound), and Convention Center (eastbound and westbound).

Then, this fall, we’ll start adding screens to eastside stations from E 102nd Ave MAX Station to Gresham Central Transit Center.

Green, Yellow and some Red Line MAX stations already have some kind of arrival display (either flatscreen monitors or reader boards). Within about two years, all MAX stations will be outfitted with screens so you have access to service information at-a-glance.
