What makes this evening special? The opening of the exhibit at ORHC, entitled: “TriMet’s MAX Light Rail, Connecting Our Region”. This new exhibit commemorates the opening of the 2015 MAX Orange Line with a look back at the historic roots and evolution of the Portland region’s light rail system. From our region’s first light rail line in 1986, through 2015 with the addition of the newest light rail line and Willamette River bridge— the Tilikum Crossing, TriMet has built a total of six MAX alignments. TriMet’s MAX light rail system is a reflection of the city’s historic rail heritage, the community’s commitment to preserving the region’s scenic beauty and livability, and the region’s continued growth.

Come and join in the evening’s festivities! A brief presentation at 6:30pm will be given by David Unsworth, who is the Director of Project Development and Permitting for the Capitol Projects Division of TriMet.

Explore the details of the history of light rail in Portland and ask questions from the experts. This exhibit was co-funded by the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation and TriMet.
