If you follow us on any social media handle then you may have heard the news that TransitScreen has recently acquired the company TransitFeeds and has rebranded it as OpenMobilityData. We've paired up with MobilityData to accelerate the creation and sharing of global public transit, urban transportation, and shared mobility data.
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).
They’re all the rage with millennials, Silicon Valley tech execs, tourists and fun-loving commuters — we’re talking electric scooters, people.
In 2006, I was in San Francisco working on a graduate degree in neuroscience. San Francisco is a city that has always boasted a variety of public transportation options - multiple subways, streetcars, buses, and of course cable cars. Even 12 years ago, before Uber, Lyft, bikesharing, and e-scooters, there were a lot of choices, and I had 3 or 4 different ways to get to work.
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.
At TransitScreen, we always want to make sure we're providing you with the most up-to-date information possible. The world of mobility is changing faster than ever, and you can count on us to make sure you're not missing anything. When dockless bikeshare first premiered in DC almost six months ago (wow!), we knew we had to get that data.
