Terms of Use

Welcome to the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon ("TriMet") website (the "Service" or "Site"). By continuing use of the Service or accessing any materials on the Site, you agree to these Terms of Use ("Terms"), as they may be updated or modified by TriMet at any time in its discretion. If you do not agree to them, do not use the Site or download any material from it.

1. Linking policy—not a public forum

The Site is not a forum for public communication and debate, but a means for TriMet to provide information relating to TriMet services, programs, objectives, missions and projects to the public and its customers. All decisions as to the placement of links to external sites or pages from the Site will be made by TriMet in its sole discretion. TriMet is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of any third party website. Third party websites are accessed at your own risk. TriMet permits links from other web sites in accordance with the following conditions:

  • The appearance, position and other aspects of the link may not be such as to damage or dilute the goodwill associated with TriMet's name and trademarks or be displayed in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among the public or disparage or discredit TriMet;
  • The appearance, position and other attributes of the link may not create the false impression that an organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with or associated with TriMet or that views expressed on the website are those of TriMet. TriMet reserves the right to require that the linking website include notice stating that it is an unofficial web site and is not endorsed by, sponsored by or affiliated with TriMet and that any views expressed on the website are not those of TriMet; and
  • When selected by a user, the link must display the Site full-screen and not within a frame on the linking website.

2. RSS feeds

RSS feeds are part of the Service and your use of the RSS feeds is subject to all of these Terms. Any reference in these Terms to the content of the Site includes the content of the RSS Feeds. In addition, the following conditions apply. You may not alter the text, links or other content of the RSS feeds in any way. If your site displays the content of the RSS feeds, you must use a platform that permits all links contained in the RSS feeds to function as intended by TriMet. You may not insert any "splash page" or any other content between a link in a TriMet RSS feed and the linked-to TriMet page.         

3. No guaranteed availability

TriMet reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof), temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to you. You agree that TriMet will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

4. Termination of service to you

You agree that TriMet, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service, and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, our belief that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms may occur without prior notice to you, and you also agree that TriMet will not be liable to you for any termination of your access to the Service.
