PORTLAND, Ore. -- Trimet's MAX and bus services were disrupted early Thursday evening from downtown Portland to Washington County.
Shuttle buses were running passengers between the Galleria/10th stop to Sunset Transit Center, and a TriMet supervisor said as many as 5,000 commuters headed west were affected. Service was restored just before 9 p.m.
Portland police reported that a person committed suicide by jumping from the Vista Bridge, which halted MAX trains while the death was being investigated.
At around 7:15 p.m., one of the shuttle buses struck a bicyclist near Pioneer Sqaure, causing further delays. The bicyclist was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was in fair condition. More: Bicyclist struck by bus
