Where’s that bus or train? See each TriMet vehicle’s location in real-time
TriMet has been lauded for its open data policies which allow folks to do some amazing things with their data. It’s just that sometimes getting to the data you need requires a little digging. But when you find that right chunk of data? Boy howdy. Things like PDX Live Bus are born.

“It gets super frustrating when I wait for a bus and the arrival time keeps saying 5 minutes,” Brown [told The Oregonian]. “When it doesn’t show up, I’ll check again and it says, ‘Oh, it will be there in 5 minutes.’”
Now, thanks to Jason, you can see every TriMet vehicle in real-time.
