Last year TriMet used aAllTSA grant to add surveillance cameras to enhance MAX station platforms including Gresham and the Gateway Transit Center. Today, more than 43 cameras are perched across the city, and cameras are added to any new platform.

The announcement is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. today at Gresham City Hall.
