TriMet beta testing trip planner with multiple mobility options
One trip, one tool, multiple modes - this is the goal of a trip planner being tested by TriMet that allows riders to see transit, ridesourcing, carsharing and bikesharing options.
TriMet's existing trip planner available on trimet.org combines transit with biking and walking, the beta version of its new planning tool, betaplanner.trimet.org, also brings in Uber, SHARE NOW (formerly car2go) and BIKETOWN. TriMet says the tool uses real-time locations of vehicles and bikes to plan a single trip using a mix of travel options, which includes TriMet buses and trains, Portland Streetcars, Portland Aerial Tram, Uber drivers, SHARE NOW locations and available BIKETOWN bikes, with more to come in the future.
