TriMet Orange Line

TriMet's Orange Line is seen headed between Kellogg Lake and the Willamette River on its way through Milwaukie toward Portland, which is on the horizon.

I went on the grand opening ride of the Max Orange Line from Milwaukie to downtown Portland. The purpose of building this $1.5 billion mass transit line in 2015 was to accommodate infill and density.

I did research on the TriMet site and was trying to adjust my thinking. On Jan. 31, I intended to go buy an annual transit pass at Pioneer Courthouse Square.
