Every day tens of thousands of people ride TriMet bus lines 4 and 9 between Portland and Gresham to connect to Portland’s Central City, Downtown Gresham, Portland Community College’s Southeast Center and many places in between.

Recent regional transportation studies, including Metro’s Regional High Capacity Transit System Plan and the East Metro Connections Plan, identified the Powell-Division corridor as an area with a significant need for improved transit. 

The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project (Powell-Division) is intended to bring new regional transit and supporting development to Southeast Portland, East Portland and Gresham in five to seven years. This is a Metro-led project ( Portland is an active and contributing partner to this project.
