Getting around on TriMet just got easier with a major update to trimet.org. Released today, the new website features upgrades to our popular trip-planning tools, such as Trip Planner and TransitTracker, aimed at making it effortless for people to get around on our transit system.
Like before, riders can use the site to plan trips quickly and easily. But now, the bulk of the updated homepage is a simple-to-navigate map of TriMet’s service district, with real-time locations of buses and trains shown, giving riders immediate information about nearby service.
Clicking on a vehicle icon brings up an arrival countdown for stops or stations along the route. Riders can also check for delays and disruptions, and click on specific locations to see when the next bus or train will be arriving. The revamped trimet.org is also now easier to use on a phone, where it functions much like a smartphone app. The smartphone version of the website is even GPS enabled, allowing the website to provide the most useful service information for you.
“We want trimet.org to be the fastest, most accurate and most convenient tool for getting around by bus or train,” Executive Director of Public Affairs JC Vannatta said. “With this and future updates that are in the works, our goal is to make transit easier and more appealing for more people. And with most people accessing trimet.org on their phones, the new site better supports the many riders who are looking for transit info on-the-go. Customers can now quickly plan their trip, track their bus or train, then tap to board.”
