Feed back and feature requests are always appreciated. Unfortunately I can’t do everything though, as I’m working and going to college, and can only work on this in my free time.

This app lets you create a list of all the Portland area TriMet bus stops you frequent, allowing you to to look up the real-time arrival estimates quickly and easily without having to go to the TriMet website every time. It works with Max lines as well.

    when will Streetcar be added?

    • Currently the street cars aren’t supported through Trimet’s developer program. Apparently the street cars are run by a separate organization, which doesn’t let Trimet give out the data for the streetcars. I haven’t figure out a good way to get at the streetcar data yet, but I’ll try to at least let my app link to the trimet mobile website for the streetcars. Sorry about that.
