This week, Portland Streetcar, Inc. announced the upcoming expansion of their service route, opening September 12th.

The expansion occurs just in time for the opening of the Tilikum Crossing, Portland’s new and highly anticipated bridge. 

In particular, the Central Loop will become two new lines, the A Loop and the B Loop. These lines will transport riders to, from, and throughout the east and west sides of Portland. With this expansion, both Loops will carry passengers over the Tilikum Crossing. 

Although September 12th marks the date when passengers will be able to travel on Tilikum Crossing, the new A and B Loops will begin operation on August 30th. The A Loop will travel clockwise through the Pearl District, Lloyd District, OMSI, and PSU. Meanwhile, the B Loop will travel counter-clockwise, giving travelers an option on how to get from here to there.  

In light of the changes, Portland Streetcar, Inc. anticipates their ridership numbers to increase to 20,000 riders per day before 2025. 

“The Streetcar’s new A and B Loops are going to allow Portlanders to travel more quickly and easily from one side of the river to the other. Along with our other improvements in service, the new routes are making the Streetcar an even better transportation option,” said Dan Bower, executive director of the non-profit Portland Streetcar, Inc.
