Portland, Oregon

One of the greatest beneficiaries of our systems engineering and light rail vehicle skills is TriMet, the transit operator in Portland, Oregon. Over the past quarter century and across several major projects, we have played a pivotal role in assisting triMet in building a light rail system that has earned international acclaim.
Major systems engineering roles were undertaken in the original Banfield Corridor Light Rail Project and 8 subsequent expansion and line extension projects. Throughout this period, hawse have continuously served as triMet’s consultant for systems engineering and vehicles. This level of continuous client service is indicative of our focus on delivering projects on time and on budget, while maintaining responsiveness to environmental and community concerns.
Firm experts assisted with design and construction management of rolling stock, operations and maintenance facilities, signalling, train control, control centers, traction power substations, overhead contact systems and fare collection systems.
