[edit] TriMet's most reliable frequent service lines

MAX
The Green Line in Old Town, downtown Portland.

The top five frequent service lines:

  1. 57-TV Hwy/Forest Grove - 98 percent of vehicles arrive unbunched
  2. MAX Yellow Line - 97 percent
  3. MAX Green Line - 97 percent
  4. MAX Red Line- 95 percent
  5. 75-Cesar Chavez/Lombard - 94 percent

For frequent service routes, we think evenly spaced buses are more important than buses that keep strictly to schedule. Data are from TriMet records on weekday headway adherence at different times of day for September through November 2011. We weighted average headway performance during each of two directions and 5 possible time slots based on the number of trips during that time slot. See below for complete data on every route.
