TriMet partners with Zipcar to offer ‘last mile’ option

Posted on January 24, 2014

In an effort to provide more sustainable and efficient transportation options, Portland, Ore.-based TriMet and Zipcar Inc. created a new joint program that will add Zipcars at three TriMet Park and Ride locations along the Blue, Green, and Red lines, making it easier for people to live and work car-free in the region.

A total of six Zipcars will offer riders a new option to complete the “last mile” of their trip through this convenient car sharing program. The addition of Zipcars along TriMet MAX Lines makes the service more accessible to the existing car-sharing community and encourages the use of public transportation by providing cost effective and convenient travel options for transit riders, according to TriMet.

TriMet joins transportation organizations across the U.S. that work with Zipcar to bridge the “last mile” of transit trips. These organizations include, San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit District, Chicago Transit Authority, King County Metro Transit in Seattle, Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, New Jersey Transit, New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority, and Washington Area Metro Transit Authority.
