New Tri-Met color scheme

A blue & orange paint scheme on a Division St bus

On the new route #2 (Division St half of the old Fessendon/Division #4 line)– I wonder if Tri-Met has decided to put a special paint scheme on lines that operate on (Portland-style) frequent headways all day?

(edit: No, that’s apparently the new Tri-Met paint scheme. Huh. I don’t know how I feel about it; it’s a good variant scheme, but I strongly believe that if you’re gonna paint your busses and trolleys traction orange you have to commit to that color and not just use it as an oh-so-trendy accent.)
