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.

Feature includes:

- 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

Route and arrival data provided by permission of TriMet.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Note: this free application was developed as a volunteer effort to provide a service for TriMet riders, the developer has no affiliation with TriMet, or Apple. Suggestions and feedback are welcome.

What's New in Version 9.1

Fixed bookmarks so first stop is not duplicated when editing.

5/5 stars


I freakin' love this app. I use it every day and it makes my life so much easier. I can now use my time much more wisely than sitting at bus stops hoping they are on time or worse, watching an early bus whizz by as I am walking to the stop. Someone should give this man a lot of money and I'm so glad it doesn't have to be me, can't believe what we're getting for free!!!

5/5 stars


Quite frankly my favorite app, use it everyday to and from work. Save's me incredible amounts of time.

5/5 stars
