When it comes to cutting-edge technology, Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) rises to the top as one of the most progressive agencies in the country. Perhaps that is why they chose INIT as their partner to supply and implement a modern, multi-media e-fare system in the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area.
Open Application Programming Interfaces (API) and third-party system integration were also critical to the success of the entire system. This component would help ease the challenging task of connecting the agency with retail partners and suppliers, and would provide passengers with outlets to purchase the media and utilize the new fare system. TriMet chose INIT for the e-fare project in the Portland-Vancouver region because INIT is the only ITS provider that combines the complete range of ITS requirements into one fully integrated system.
