TriMet announces new GM & new Westside bus line


dougkelsey   TriMet's Chief Operating Officer Doug Kelsey has been named the agency's next General Manager.
   His track record of success in prior settings, as well as his work since coming to TriMet in 2015 is what set him apart, according to the TriMet Board.
   In other TriMet news, the mass transit agency is also rolling out three new bus lines - the 42 will be a new Westside route.
   Bus line 42, also known as Denny/Hall, will start connecting riders on Monday between the transit centers of Tigard, Washington Square, and Beaverton.

   "Line 42 is a great alternative to driving congested roads and will serve highly populated areas and employment corridors between Tigard and Beaverton," said Tigard Mayor John Cook.  
   The new line will offer service on parts of Hall Boulevard in Tigard and Denny Road in Beaverton that TriMet did not previously serve.
