As Pats fans gear up for another Brady-Belichick showdown, Atlanta gears up for an influx of people — not just any kind of people, sports fans. Two major concerns that come with any major event: traffic and drunk driving. What's Atlanta's plan for combating Super Bowl LIII?
TransitScreen has announced its expansion into Latin America, with data now available in the five largest cities for its TransitScreen displays, MobilityScore platform, and CityMotion mobile app.
2018 was certainly an exciting year for mobility, but what will 2019 have in store for us? The list below will answer that question with our predictions of what's going to take off in the new year.
Central Florida is a quickly growing region. In fact, it’s growing so quickly that meeting its
housing needs would require the equivalent of a new 330-unit multifamily building each week.
As part of its growth, it also has one of the country’s newest passenger rail lines – SunRail, a
47-mile commuter rail line that traverses exurban, suburban, and downtown areas. It adds a
transportation option for thousands and opens up opportunities for Central Florida to have true
transit-oriented development (TOD) to address our housing issues as well.
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.
Cities globally are experiencing the same changes in transportation — better information about mobility is a universal need. That’s why our vision for TransitScreen is boundless: our technology can work in any place, for any person, to get them anywhere they need to go. We can run on any screen or any mobile device, in any city in five countries (and 10 languages).

We were inspired by TJ Oshie using the Metro to get to his Stanley Cup-winning games, but he wasn't the first athlete to use the subway on game day! During the 2017 NBA season, LeBron James and his teammates went viral when they rode the NYC subway to their game against the Knicks. Classic city stadiums, such as Madison Square Garden, are setting examples for smart cities to rethink where and how they're building new stadiums.
If King James understands the value and ease of using public transit to get to games, then shouldn't you, too?
