The Portland Bureau of Transportation and Tri-Met want pedestrians, bike riders and vehicle drivers to focus on safety as daylight hours grow short following the November 3 expiration of Daylight Savings Time.
Tri-Met’s program, called “Be Seen, Be Safe,” will run from November 4-8. Small groups of volunteers will dress in bright clothing to hand out blinking lights and reflective stickers to people walking on sidewalks, waiting at bus stops or riding bikes near bus and MAX lines. The teams will be at East Burnside Street and 16th Avenue from 7-9 a.m. November 6; East Burnside Street and 28th Avenue from 7-9 a.m. November 7 and Northeast Sandy Boulevard at 82nd Avenue from 4-6 p.m. November 7.
Teams will be stationed from 7-9 a.m. November 4 at Southeast 82nd Avenue and Division Street and at Southeast 82nd Avenue and Powell Boulevard. A team will work from 7-9 a.m. at West Burnside Street and 24th Place on November 5.
