Morning Commute to Portland
Passengers are encouraged to start their commute from a major transit center or park and ride whenever bad weather is in the forecast as routes 157, 177, and 190 may be suspended. If that’s the case, please consider these options:
- Instead of Route 157, start from the 99th Street Transit Center and board Route 199 to Portland. Once in Portland, transfer to any eastbound MAX to Lloyd District;
- Instead of Route 177, start from Fisher’s Landing Transit Center and board Route 164 to downtown Portland;
- Instead of Route 190, start from the 99th Street Transit Center and board Route 105 to downtown Portland; or, from the Andresen Park & Ride board Route 4 or 44 to TriMet’s Delta Park MAX Station for connections to Portland via MAX. In Portland, transfer to TriMet Line 8 for service to Marquam Hill, or board the Portland Streetcar to South Waterfront Avenue for service to Marquam Hill via the tram.
All other Express routes will continue to operate during bad weather, but are subject to delays and may only transport passengers to the nearest MAX station for continued service into Portland. For trip planning assistance, please call the C-TRAN Passenger Service Office at (360) 695-0123.

- Route 157 passengers are asked to board any westbound MAX train to SW 6th Avenue in downtown Portland;
- Route 190 passengers are asked to take either TriMet Route 8 to SW 6th Avenue in downtown Portland or the Tram to South Waterfront and board the Portland Streetcar to SW 6th Avenue.
