    The TriMet bus system, which covers the city and its suburbs thoroughly, offers low fares, friendly drivers and full wheelchair accessibility. Most buses are now equipped with bike racks, making mass transit more user-friendly for the cycling set.

    In 2013, TriMet introduced a mobile ticketing app for Android and iPhone, allowing riders to buy tickets and passes in advance and without having to carry cash. You can also purchase tickets at the TriMet Information Center in Pioneer Courthouse Square.
