PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

TriMet is holding seven open houses this month to discuss new plans for the years ahead.

The organization says those plans include new bus lines, a low-income fare program, an all-electric bus test, and 24-hour service on some bus lines.

Many people showed up for the first meeting that was held in Oregon City Wednesday night.

The public was able to ask questions and provide feedback about the proposed plans.

"I'm really glad I asked the question about if you've got 24-hour service, is there more safety for the operators, and they said that they're going to be making some physical changes to help protect the operators so I think that's good thing overall for the whole system," said Sherrie Austin.

TriMet will be hosting more open houses throughout the metro area.
