In Portland, Open Data Makes It Easier to Get Around

September 29, 2010

Imagine being able to travel around your city with public transit information literally at your fingertips. Today this is a reality in Portland, Oregon, thanks to the TriMet transportation system, a new leader in data sharing. By making data on public transit available and accessible to its many tech-savvy riders, TriMet has allowed for the creation of more than 35 phone applications since 2005—all of which are designed to create a more informed user experience. We meet the people behind this creative new approach to transit data sharing, and see how this system makes daily commuting around Portland that much more efficient and enjoyable.
