The Pulse has re-opened for service, 7am-7pm, M-F. Access is via a walk-up window to the Customer Service area as we continue with precautions and safety measures during the current pandemic.
The METRO PULSE, at 21 Elm Street in Portland, is the hub for METRO and where Routes, #2, #4, #5, #7, and the Husky Line begin and end their routes. Wait for your next bus or ask our Customer Service staff for information about our service.
The METRO PULSE (also known as the Downtown Transportation Center) is located at the Elm Street Garage (Elm Street is off Congress Street, near the Portland Public Library).
METRO Routes #1, #8, # 9A, #9B, and METRO BREEZ do not service the METRO PULSE location directly, but they can be accessed along Congress Street, which is only a block from this location. METRO Route #3 does NOT travel into downtown Portland. It is a crosstown route from Portland/Riverton, Westbrook, and South Portland.
METRO’s express service, METRO BREEZ, can be accessed along Congress Street.
The closest stops to the METRO PULSE are at the Portland Library (southbound) and Monument Square (Northbound).
