New state-of-the-art bus shelters installed on Jackson Street in Milwaukie

If you live or work in Milwaukie, you’ve probably seen some dramatic changes downtown on Jackson Street. As a partner in the City’s Jackson Street Improvement Project, we recently installed new state-of-the-art bus shelters (one on each side of the street), complete with arrival displays, leaning rails, benches, an integrated windscreen design and brighter LED lighting for safety.

The City of Milwaukie identified the Jackson Street area as its top priority for transit improvements. The revitalization also included wider sidewalks, ornamental lighting, trash containers, benches, bike racks, new landscaping, and a sculpture garden adjacent to City Hall.

We’re also working with the City to improve and consolidate bus operations in Milwaukie, including adding stops at Washington Avenue and reducing the time buses are parked along the street.

We’re proud to be part of the transformation in Milwaukie City Center. The project, including the bus shelters, was funded mostly by federal stimulus money and Federal Transit Administration grants. TriMet Bus Lines 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 70, 75, 99 and 152 serve the new downtown shelters.

As the manager of Capital Projects for TriMet, I direct the activities of the agency’s Park & Ride and transit infrastructure programs. I have helped to identify, set policy and implement the most cost-effective mix of investments in transit infrastructure and transportation alternatives to meet the mobility needs of a growing Portland region.
