When out and about on TriMet, be sure to hide devices such as smartphones, tablets and iPods when not in use, and always be aware of your surroundings. When parking at a Park & Ride lot, lock your car and take valuables with you.
Last month, we took a camera down to Pioneer Courthouse Square to capture pics of some TriMet fans. Dozens of riders stopped by to say hi (and say “Cheese!”). We met families, visitors, commuters, students and everyone in between, as they got on or off buses and trains downtown.
We had a blast, and we wanted to share some of our favorite mugs. Click on the graphic to start the slideshow.
We’ll be having another photo shoot soon, so stay tuned to find out when and where!
Do you have kids back in school? Remind them not to cross the street in front of a TriMet bus, unless it’s stopped at a light. Always use the crosswalk, and look both ways before crossing train tracks.
Thanks to our fabulous developer community, six new transit apps have been added to the TriMet App Center:
- allSchedules for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
- Commute for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
- MyMet for web browsers and various mobile devices
- RealTime Transit for Windows Phone 7
- Transit Appliance for any monitor or TV with a VGA, DVI or HDMI input
- TransitTimes Portland for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
These are just a few of the free and commercial applications available from third-party developers using TriMet’s open data.
If you use a smartphone (such as BlackBerry®, iPhone® or Android®), you can access TriMet tools and information quickly and easily at m.trimet.org.
