TriMet is a national leader in transit. So much more than connecting people from point A to point B. Some great milestones and and a couple of new ideas too.
TriMet just celebrated 10 million rides at the Airport MAX Red Line station at PDX in its 10 year service.
Sunset Magazine recently selected Portland as the best city to 'ditch your car'.
The first transit district in the nation to partner with Google Transit to allow riders to plan their transit trips on Google Map.
Another first: the new Portland Regional Trip Planner, the firs open-source, multi-modal trip planner produced by a US transit system. It combines biking, and walking trips in a single itinerary.. you can even set it to accommodate your bike preferences, so you can avoid hills.
TriMet's general manager Neil McFarlane joined us recently, to talk about the milestones and hopes for the future. LISTEN TO OUR CONVERSATION, BELOW.
