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

Best TriMet App Out There
I tried a few trimet apps out there. This one makes all of the details about my trips and buses the most readily available. It also comes with some other bells and whistles that just plain work out of the box, which even the official try that app is far from achieving. Nice work! Thank you!
Need I say more than the title? It's got a ton of functionality and as such it can be a bit overwhelming. Sometimes while I'm on the bus I'll just play with it and I regularly find cool features I didn't know it had.
I've been using this app ever since its release, and it's always been perfect for all my transit needs.
Now that it's been updated with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support, it's 5 stars for sure!
