Looks like this can evolve into a great service. Congratulations.

While this kind of thing ramps up and cell phone technology disperses, 
another simple solution I have
implemented on websites is to simply link to lines that pass nearby the 
(business) desitination, like so:

and also include the trimet trip planner telephone number.
503-238-Ride (503-238-7433).

As a pedestrian/cyclist/transit rider, I have been sensitive to 
incorporating transit info/maps on the websites I have helped build for 

For examples, see the FOOTERs on :

Best wishes,
