PDX Bus is an award winning application that displays arrival times for public transport in Portland, Oregon.
** PDX Bus won Best in Show at the CivicApps.org awards **
This little application uses the Internet to quickly access TriMet's live tracking data to display arrival times perfectly formatted for the iPhone. It allows you to bookmark frequently used stops, displays recently accessed stops, and gives details for arrivals which are en-route.
You can enter the stop "id" of the stop (as displayed at each stop or station) or you can browse the routes for the stop.
- Interactive rail maps, showing the MAX, WES and Streetcar stops.
- Embedded maps, showing locations of stops, and when available, the last known position of the bus or train.
- Use GPS to locate nearby stops or rail stations.
- Browse routes and stops, show an entire route on the map.
- Links to TriMet route information.
- Displays Rider Alerts, and Detours.
- A "Nighttime visibility flasher" - a flashing screen that can be used at night so that drivers can see you. TriMet suggests holding up a cell phone to make yourself visible to bus drivers.
-Trip Planning - now you can use the same trip planning feature that is available on TriMet's web site.
- Specially formatted text to work with the iPhone 3GS VoiceOver accessibility feature to speak arrivals.
- QR code reader to read codes at bus stops and stations

What's New in Version 9.1
Fixed bookmarks so first stop is not duplicated when editing.
Essential app for commuters
I use it every day and it makes getting around on TriMet so much easier. I especially like being able to select a bus and see its exact location, which is very helpful when heavy traffic or bad weather makes the time estimates inaccurate.
Always accurate, nice feature set
I've used PDX bus everyday for 3 years. It is always accurate and has the best commuting feature set. Route memory, map selection, station finder, time estimator are all easy to use and handy. Most of all, the app is always accurate.
Perfect app. Obviously designed for the real pdx commuter with the ease and elegance of a tourist friendly tool. The iwatch app slays me. Thanks for having a brain!!! Xoxo
