TriMet (Portland’s transit agency) launched an updated version of its app, TriMet Tickets, which allows users to book a ride with Lyft or rent a car from Car2Go, directly from the app. The option to show “More Rides” will present users with nearby Lyft or Car2Go cars; selecting one will take the user to the selected app. A TriMet spokesman states that by offering users options that work closely with transit, they hope to solve the first-mile, last-mile solution. The new version of the app was developed by Moovel, which said that other options such as bikesharing could be added in the future.
