TriMet Makes Bus, Train Service Change In Response To Heat

(Portland, OR) -- TriMet is making changes to its bus and train services in response to the heat wave. When the temperature exceeds 90 degrees, all MAX trains will slow to 35 miles an hour. This normally happens when the temperature hits 100, but because of the prolonged heat, officials want to reduce strain on the cables and tracks. Bus operators may keep windows closed, because it makes the air conditioning system work better.
