TransitScreen NYC

TransitScreen displays transit conditions so people can make informed decisions about what mode to take–before trekking to a crowded station where trains are delayed. TransitScreen is working on putting its displays in several types of locations, including shops and building lobbies. More of these displays around the city would be a welcome sight; not just at transit hubs.

Currently, they don’t seem to be offering a solution for the home user. This is unfortunate since most transit users’ trips originate from home at least once a day. In the absence of a home version, it would be wonderful if they opened up their data so that people could build their own display. I would have used their aggregated data had it been available when I created the Good Morning Display and I think these sort of informational displays are going to become more common in the home.
