From Portland Afoot
TriMet's Green Line is a MAX light rail line running from Clackamas Town Center to Portland State University by way of Gateway Transit Center, Lloyd Center, Rose Quarter Transit Center, Union Station and the downtown Transit Mall.
It was the first phase of TriMet's South Corridor project to bring light rail to Clackamas County. Because of a series of service cuts that began around the time of the line's opening, service on the newly opened line was about one-third below the levels originally planned.
 Construction cost
The 8.3-mile, 8-station extension opened Sept. 12, 2009. It also included another 12 new stations on the rebuilt Portland Transit Mall. The cost was $575.7 million, or $585 million in 2010 dollars.
