Urban development has been structuring itself around a new concept lately: mobility. Mobility isn't just about how easy it is to get out of your neighborhood, but also about what's in your neighborhood. Can you walk out of your home and walk to a grocery store, a shop, or a bar?
October is beautiful for so many reasons: the fall colors, cooler weather, autumn flavors, and of course, Halloween. In the spirit of Halloween, we've collected some of the creepiest haunted spots around the nation that are ridiculously easy to get to.

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?
We at TransitScreen are proud to announce a partnership with EcoDigital Media, an industry leader in turn-key digital signage solutions, to bring our real-time mobility content to their network of screens.
What is placemaking? Project for Public Spaces breaks it down extensively here, but in short: Placemaking is about how we make cities and spaces into more than just streets and trees. It's about creating a place that people want to be, that's accessible, that's unique.
We talk a lot about how TransitScreen can increase your apartment’s property value, how it can make it easier to lease a commercial building, and how it can improve the employee commute experience. I know what you might be thinking — “What about my retail space?”
You may remember the giant billboard featuring us outside Fenway Park. Thanks to Orange Barrel Media, we brought real-time transit information to a huge number of people, and it's not even baseball season yet!
