Information about your transportation choices is displayed at a glance, live and in real-time. Compare train times to bus arrivals on your way to work in the morning. Know when your employee shuttle arrives so you aren’t caught waiting in the cold. Grab another cup at the coffee shop while you wait for your streetcar. Catch Uber instead of bikeshare when it’s raining.
Our service is active in every major city in the US and Canada, and select European cities. You can choose from over 10 languages including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi.
TransitScreen launched in 2013 from a civic technology project at Mobility Lab in Arlington, Virginia focused on urban mobility solutions.
We take great pride in how we build our products while maintaining our values: a focus on environmental sustainability, a commitment to open data and standards, and increasing accessibility to all people.
TransitScreen was selected as a 2014 Finalist for Fast Company’s prestigious Innovation By Design Awards for SmartWalk.
SmartWalk is a digital display of real-time transit information, including walking directions, which can be projected on any sidewalk or wall. It provides live transit information at a glance, and makes wayfinding instantaneous—all you need to do is follow the arrows to the nearest bikeshare rack or metro stop.
