Abstract

In anticipation of TriMet and the City of Portland’s vision to create the subterranean tunnel for MAX light trail beneath downtown, which design considerations must be made in order to ensure that MAX light rail will continue to promote downtown walkability, passenger comfort, and economic vitality? This will be looked at through the dissemination of three United States cities which contain underground transit stations.
