Portland Transport discussion & update on MAX arrivals

The MAX arrival times have all been scheduled and not real-time since the Green Line opened.  (PDX Bus shows them in grey).

On the Portland transit blog the comments have an insight into what's going on... it is interesting that they don't use GPS.  (I head heard that this was why the real-time info was bad downtown as the GPS receivers did not work.  This is not the case...)

I hope TriMet finishes testing soon!

Trip planner fixed!

The helpful people at TriMet labs got back to me today - the trip planner has been fixed - one of the servers was down so it couldn't handle the load. Anyway, it's all working again.

Trip planner is suffering from intermittent downess

The trip planner is back now, but seeing as another user has seen it go down on other days, I can only assume it is suffering from some intermittent problem.  Let's hope it is fixed soon!

Trip planner is down :-(

The trip planner is currently not working.  Behind the scenes I can see the following error message is being returned.  I have asked TriMet about it.  I am also using this as an opportunity to update PDX Bus so this message can be displayed when it occurs.
