(Don’t) Trash Me App 7 years 4 months ago 417
This app will locate nearby public recycling containers (standard on street as well as processors of less common recyclables—block polysterene, plastic bags, etc.).

Accessible Trip Planner 7 years 1 week ago 275
Combining the Trimet datasets/services with the datasets pertaining to curbs, sidewalks, and slope/elevation would allow a user to plan an "accessible" trip. Walking or otherwise traveling to a station that's technically the closest one may not be the best option if it's a 50ft elevation gain or the travel path has no sidewalks or curb ramps.
