Green Means Go...
And that's what TriMet's inaugural Green Line train is doing as it arrives at Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland. The train is crossing the eastbound Blue/Red Line track on Yamhill Street at the southwest corner of the square.
The official first train was met by Portland's own Get A Life Marching Band playing the 1970s R&B classic "Love Train" and by a shower of green confetti.
As it pulled up to the platform, an entourage of green-class dancers danced their way off the train and into the square.
TriMet offered free rides on the Green Line Sep. 12-13 as part of the opening weekend celebrations. The new MAX Mall Shuttle, a Monday-Friday afternoon service on the downtown Transit Mall, also began operating Sep. 14.
