Technical.ly/DC author Lalita Clozel covered the news about our partnership with the firm Wells + Associates in the article "New TransitScreen display goes live at Tysons Corner mall," which recently resulted in the installation of the first projection screen display of live, real-time transit information in the DC region at Tysons Corner Center mall in Fairfax County, Virginia. "The 4 foot by 6 foot glass projection screen near the Tysons Silver line will reach the 15,000 to 25,000 people who walk by it daily," said co-founder Ryan Croft in an interview with Bisnow's Tania Anderson for her article "That New Screen at Tysons." The idea is to "help drive the transformation of Tysons from a destination for drivers into a walkable, urban oasis," added Ryan. TransitScreen is excited about the potential for this partnership to enable many more travelers to make intelligent decisions about traveling throughout the region using one of the many transportation options available to them.

On your next shopping spree at the Tysons Corner Center mall, take a quick glance at the four-by-six-foot screen above the exit and you’ll find out precisely when your next Metro is coming.
The display was set up Wednesday by TransitScreen, a local company that makes displays of public transportation schedules, in partnership with engineering group Wells + Associates. The companies are teaming up to develop solutions to change travel behaviors in Tysons Corner.
By showing local schedules for the Silver Line Metro and the 18 Metro bus routes that serve Tysons Corner, the screen will help “teach travelers about the multiple options of transportation to and from Tysons Corner other than their single-occupancy vehicles,” spokesman Graham Caywood said in an email.
