It's the most wonderful time of the year, right? Ignoring the cold gusts of air and random freezing rain showers, I think most of us would agree. What's great about this time of the year for property managers is that you can show your residents, tenants, or guests that you care about creating a community — and we know just how you can do it!
TransitScreen was started to solve a problem: the need to simplify your transportation choices by giving you a single place to find all your real-time transportation information. Until now, we’ve focused on the experience of apartment residents and employees by helping you get from point A to point B fast with a simple glance at TransitScreen while you’re on your way through the lobby of your building. We’ve saved millions of people time by increasing their awareness of their transportation choices.
We wanted you to be prepared for at least one thing this Thanksgiving, so when your family asks what's up with scooters this year, you've got the answers!
Lyft recently got its skin in the scooter game, throwing another hat into the mobility ring. Depending on where you live, your commute choices have been expanding rapidly, with one of the more popular (and controversial) methods being electric scooters. Not only is this two-wheeled ride service fast and sweat-free, but you can also make money when you choose to scoot.
There are many things changing within the transportation landscape: increased bike lanes, pedestrian-only areas, and autonomous vehicles to name a few. What's really been taking center stage is micromobility, but you may know it better as bikes and scooters — the missing pieces to urban movement.
It's beginning to feel like Fall, which means it's voting season. If you think it'll be difficult getting to your polling location, think again — you can use mass transit to go vote for free or at a discounted rate!
If you weren't with us last year then you probably won't remember when we shared that 17 percent of Americans commute over 45 minutes to work, totaling in nearly 16 days a year being spent in a car. This could be why we're finding that more professionals are leaving jobs due to grueling commutes.
