TriMet’s Westside Express Service (WES): Hall/Nimbus Station

I originally posted this on my old website on March 26, 2009.

I don't have any pictures of the Hall/Nimbus Station at 8505 SW Cascade Avenue, behind Cascade Plaza in Beaverton, adjacent to SW Hall Boulevard near its intersection with SW Nimbus Avenue, as is is the smallest and has the least visual interest of the five stations. It is a raised platform like the others on the east side of the track with two bus-stop-style shelters and the "interactivator" on it. The station uses a gauntlet track like at the Tualatin station to allow for the passage of freight trains. The station connects to three TriMet bus lines and features 10 bike lockers and 16 bike rack spaces and a 50-space Park & Ride lot that is more of an alley behind Cascade Plaza with diagonal parking. Full-length TriMet buses cannot directly access the WES station as they cannot negotiate the tight exit from the parking lot. (I was on one that tried on January 30th.)
