TriMet buses will start crossing the Sellwood Bridge Monday, Dec. 5 after a 12-year absence.
Line 99 currently runs from Clackamas Community College to downtown Portland across the Ross Island Bridge.
For people like Charlie Rowley, whose girlfriend lives near the Sellwood Bridge, it’s meant the bus hasn’t been a viable option — until now.
"I think it’s great. I think the more we use mass transit and the more cars we get off the road the better,” he said.
TriMet spokeswoman Roberta Altstadt says it’s exciting.
