We’re delighted to announce that we have partnered with Ride Connection to provide Transit Board™ service in a number of senior centers and service locations, including the Multnomah County Aging and Disability Services office in Gresham.
There are many partners who came together to make this location happen, including:
- Ride Connections partners East County U-Ride and RideWise
- Free Geek which provided the computers (Ubuntu Linux and Opera web browser running in kiosk mode for us geeks)
- Multnomah County Aging and Disability Services who hosted the display in their lobby
Portland Transport is happy to play a small part.
Want to see what they’re seeing? Here’s the Transit Board link for that location.

Did you theme the colors so they match the Ride Connection logo?

It would be cool if there was an operating system that was designed to just do web browsing–one that did not have any things not needed for web browsing. As for Free Geek, we’re lucky to have such a great ability to get older computers re-purposed. Especially nowadays, many people and applications, such as web kiosks, really don’t need the hardware specs found in new ones.
Oh, and I like their “Getting Around” info.
