7:35-7:55- Alderwood-Cornfoot-Columbia Job Connector Shuttle (20 min)
April Bertelsen, PBOT Transit Modal Coordinator; MaryJo Andersen, Multnomah County Transportation Planning
Multnomah County will offer a free shuttle service to the area south of the Portland International Airport. The shuttle service is planned to begin later in 2021. Currently, it is named the Alderwood-Cornfoot-Columbia Job Connector Shuttle. This shuttle will help people access jobs in the Airport Way Industrial Area from existing TriMet and C-Tran transit service and nearby neighborhoods. Planning for the shuttle is underway in partnership between Multnomah County, Portland Bureau of Transportation and Port of Portland, to identify the route and the days and hours of operation. We are seeking input from area employers and community members through online surveys and virtual meetings.
