ODOT adds public transit information to TripCheck.com
Find transportation options online
MAY 1, 2007 – The Oregon Department of Transportation’s award-winning travel information Web site, www.TripCheck.com, just added another useful trip-planning tool. In addition to news on the latest road and traffic conditions, now users can find extensive public transit information by clicking on the Transportation Options tab.
“Visitors to the Web site can find local, regional and statewide transportation services including maps as well as links to routes and schedules with just a few clicks of a mouse,” ODOT Intercity Program Manager Matthew Barnes said. “The site is really easy to use. Select the travel area or starting and destination cities, then select any accommodations you require.”
TripCheck.com’s Transportation Options tab includes several different ways to search for information including:
- City or county – allows users to search for transportation options within a specific city or county. Users can refine the search with filters for wheelchair accessibility, bicycle transport, service days and by travel mode, such as bus, train and taxi.
- City to city – allows users to search for intercity public transit connections. Services can be filtered by wheelchair or bicycle accommodations. General information about local transportation providers, including contact information and Web site, is also available.
- Special accommodations – allows users to find transit service that accommodate various mobility devices, provide door to door or curb to curb service, or other specialized services.
“TripCheck.com’s Transportation Options tab represents a distinct step forward in the availability of Oregon transit information,” said Barnes.
