Portland, Oregon is famous for its excellent public transit. When TEECOM opened an office in the city in March, 2017, we knew that we wanted to expand Lobby Transit™, our free award-winning real-time transit information app, to incorporate PDX.
Today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve enabled Lobby Transit™ for MAX Light Rail, Portland Streetcar, and WES Commuter Rail. Using an API to “translate” information from the TriMet Transit Tracker, Lobby Transit™ enables anyone to display a colorful graphic that tells viewers when the next transit option will arrive, and alerts riders to delays and emergency notifications. Choose a background and visual theme that complement your organization’s branding to make Lobby Transit™ look great in your space.
Lobby Transit™ has been enthusiastically adopted by San Francisco Bay Area companies (such as Unity) looking for content to fill their lobby display screens, and we hope it’s adopted by Portland-area firms as well. Lobby Transit™ is free on the iTunes store and on Apple TV. We’ve also published a complete configuration guide to help you get Lobby Transit™ up and running for display on large screen formats.
TEECOMlabs plans to enable the app for more cities in the future.
