TriMet testing mobile ticket app

Posted: Updated:

TriMet is planning to launch a test of the new, much-anticipated TriMet Tickets mobile app this week. About 150 riders were chosen from a pool of 1,500 applicants to beta test the application.

The app will allow riders to conveniently buy tickets anytime and anywhere from their smartphones to ride buses, MAX trains, WES Commuter Rail and the Portland Streetcar. The beta test group will test the app for about a month and provide feedback ahead of its summer release.

TriMet says the app will also help save the agency money by reducing the operating cost associated with printed and cash fares.
