The Oregon Public Transit Information System, or OPTIS, is the web-based software that the Public Transit Section uses to manage grants. It automates and standardizes many transactions and serves as our system of record.

In OPTIS you can:

  • Submit reimbursement requests
  • Enter reporting data
  • Track your grant activities
  • Check agreement status
  • Access payment histories, grant balances, and assets
  • Run reports

Asset Condition Assessments

Federal Transit Administration Transit Asset Management rule requires that transit providers determine and track the condition of their assets. Use these interactive spreadsheets that ODOT has created to asses the condition of your assets, then report that condition in OPTIS. Report asset conditions in OPTIS quarterly for vehicles and annually for facilities and equipment.
