The Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet), the transit operator for the Portland metropolitan area, has partnered with Uber, SHARE NOW (formerly car2go), and BIKETOWN to pilot their new multimodal trip planning tool.
This tool incorporates real-time transit, ridesourcing, carsharing, and bikesharing information, all in one platform. Within the app users can locate buses, trains, streetcars, etc., check the availability of on-demand bikes and cars, and search routes by specific destination (for instance, by entering a business name or address). TriMet is currently looking for feedback on the tool and hopes that this app can help users to plan personalized multimodal trips and increase utilization of transit services.
Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility Center, ITS America and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program.
