TUALATIN, OR (KPTV) -

A new TriMet line is looking to ease congestion between Tualatin and Sherwood, and it's set to begin service next month.

TriMet announced Line 97 on Tuesday. Line 97 will run along Tualatin-Sherwood Road.

Sherwood City Council said it will help connect people with shopping and jobs in the growing industrial area, and gives them an alternative to driving.

"To bring a bus line to connect Sherwood to Tualatin and to mass transit is really huge for our businesses as well as our citizens who are trying to navigate the roads. So we're really excited about it," said Jennifer Harris, Sherwood City Council President.

Regular service will begin on June 6. Line 97 will run Monday through Friday, every 30 minutes starting at 6:30 a.m.
