TriMet is all set for their second annual Be Seen, Be Safe event tonight at Pioneer Courthouse Square. The event will feature a mix of reflective and hi-vis fashion shows, a contest to see who has the most well-lit bike, and a guided ride through the city to show it all off.

With the days becoming much shorter and darkness ruling many morning and evening commutes, TriMet is following suit with ODOT, who announced their visibility campaign last month.

To give you an idea of what to expect, here are some photos from last year…

See you out there!
