The City of Toronto and Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong officially announced the partnership with TransitScreen to pilot multiple TransitScreen displays in city buildings this morning. The City of Toronto unveiled one screen in the lobby of City Hall, with another screen installed at Metro Hall. The public event was held this morning, Monday, June 29 at 9am in the lobby of Toronto City Hall.
“As a resident of Toronto, I’m excited to begin this partnership with the city,” said Andres Trivino, TransitScreen’s Canada and Latin America Manager. “The City of Toronto is planning to convert the city into a low-carbon emission city through the Transformation Toronto 2050 initiative, and bringing TransitScreen will help promote and inform the citizens of all the multimodal transportation options Toronto offers. This partnership will help to reduce the city’s dependence on single-occupancy vehicles.”
The live, real-time transportation displays will include transportation information and direction to all local transportation options, including TTC subway, TTC bus, TTC streetcar, TTC Alerts, Go Transit bus, Go Transit train, car2go, Zipcar and Bike Share Toronto, all to make it easier for people to choose sustainable transportation in Toronto.
“The partnership with the City of Toronto is a major win for TransitScreen north of the border,” said TransitScreen COO Ryan Croft. “As more and more cities commit to sustainable urban mobility, we will continue to partner with leaders who want to help residents and visitors make more informed transportation choices.”
