Security Upgrades by TriMet
TriMet Receives Grant for Security Upgrades
Grant will fund more MAX station cameras
TriMet is receiving a $1.9 million federal grant from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to enhance security on the transit system.
The grant will allow us to add security cameras at 9 MAX stations, complete perimeter securement at TriMet facilities and fund a backup command center.
Starting this summer, we will begin installing cameras at the following stations:
· Eastside: E 122nd Ave, E 102nd Ave, Gateway Transit Center (adding more cameras), Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center, NE 7th Ave, Convention Center
· Westside: Goose Hollow/SW Jefferson St, Millikan Way, Orenco/NW 231st Ave
This will bring the total number of stations with cameras to 74 out of 84, many funded with TSA grants. This is the fourth TSA grant awarded to TriMet to enhance security.
