The TriMet Tickets app now connects you with more transportation options

A new feature is now included in your TriMet Tickets mobile app that allows you to easily connect with other transportation options nearby, including Lyft and car2go.

The idea is to keep you moving and help you connect to transit — sometimes you just need a ride that first mile to the station, or the last mile home from the bus stop. And in the future, we plan to add more services, such as BIKETOWN bike sharing.

How to use it

First, download the latest version of our TriMet Tickets app.

Then, tap the navigation drawer in the top-left corner of the screen and select “More Rides Nearby.” The transportation options closest to you will appear. Swipe left or right to toggle back and forth between the options.

Finally, select your ride and you’re done! Easy, right?

Discounts during MAX disruptions May 8-21

With our 1st Avenue MAX Improvements project beginning this Sunday, May 8, the timing of this update couldn’t be better. For two weeks, MAX Blue, Green and Red lines will be disrupted and all MAX lines will run on reduced frequency. Fortunately, our friends at Lyft and car2go are providing discounts to riders through the TriMet Tickets app.

New Lyft users can enter code “FIRSTAVE” for $5 off their first 10 rides through the app. Existing users can enter code “LTMP16” for 20 percent off a Lyft ride. (The offer for current Lyft members is valid for the first 1,000 people who claim it — hurry up!)

Meanwhile, car2go is offering new members free registration and 15 minutes of drive time with promotion code “C2G15” (allow five to seven days for car2go membership activation). For existing car2go members, spend $100 in drive time in May 2016 and receive 20 minutes drive time for free. To redeem, email your membership information to portland@car2go.com.

More Lyft drivers and car2go vehicles will be positioned near high-traffic transit stations throughout the metro area to help you get where you need to go during this huge construction project.

We hope you can take advantage of these discounts during the service disruption. And we’d love to hear what you think about the new app feature! Drop us a line at trimet.org/feedback.
