TriMet’s VR Training for Light Rail Operators Helps Employees Safely Learn Routes & Troubleshoot Problems
For TriMet (the fourth largest light rail operator in the US), operator training is critical. Together with Foundry 45, they developed a virtual reality (VR) operator training program that offers the advantages of real-world scenarios:
- increased flexibility
- added safety
TriMet successfully piloted the VR training solution in October 2020. The employee feedback was very positive and the virtual scenario-based program officially became part TriMet’s rail training education at the start of 2021, with plans to expand their VR training scenarios based on operators’ actual encounters.
