It's 2018, and the future is here. Welcome to the new mobility.
At TransitScreen, we’re always looking for ways to make transportation information more easily accessible. A public screen in the right location, like a lobby exit, is the most powerful way to inform people, but we know people sometimes want information in other locations too.
TransitScreen works hard to provide you a customized, curated experience — all the transit information that’s most useful to you, all in one place. As part of this, we have an option for communities and workplaces to have access to our real-time information on personal screens in addition to the lobby.
One of our long-term goals is to improve the design quality of information in buildings and other public spaces. Our designers keep abreast of trends, sweat the details, and test the usability of the results — like our new Futura theme, which was recently rolled out to all our customers.
Here's a statistic that may surprise you: Only 25 percent of smartphone owners use their phones at least occasionally to get public transit information, according to a 2015 Pew report, and 10 percent do this frequently. That means at least 65 percent of people don't even use apps for this occasionally — if at all!
