TriMet issued an apology to riders Thursday after all MAX lines experienced “significant delays” due to vandalism to a signal, and is now offering a reward for information on the incident.

On Thursday afternoon, every MAX line faced service disruptions for about two hours.

Update: MAX Blue, Green and Red lines delayed up to 30 min due to signal issue; MAX Orange and Yellow lines delayed up to 20 minutes.— TriMet (@trimet) August 11, 2017

After looking into a signal issue, TriMet crews discovered the cause was vandalism of high-voltage cables near the Hollywood Transit Center.
