TransitScreen has supplied screens to BrightLine stations in Florida to provide real-time information supporting multimodal transportation and services beyond the train.

Jonathan Hopkins, vice president of mobility at Brightline, says: “The addition of their TransitScreen7 screens to our stations enhances and works in concert with our mission to make a car-optional lifestyle possible through the use of ride shares, public transit, bikes, scooters, shuttles and other vehicle services.”

TransitScreen says its solution communicates the connectedness of each station to other transit modes for users and travellers. 

TransitScreen's proprietary data platform is expected to coordinate and customise more than 3,000 data feeds to provide real-time information about scooters, bike-shares, mopeds, ride-hailing services and private transportation like shuttle buses and vanpool programmes. 

Tony Hudgins, senior vice president of partnerships at TransitScreen, says: “Brightline owns and operates a significant amount of commercial real estate surrounding its station locations. This further expands our transportation partnership offering potential future integration of TransitScreen for customers to use.

“Our partnership with Brightline allows us to bring even more options and convenience to customers in the Florida region and is an excellent example of where transportation is going in the future -- sustainable and affordable."

Additionally, TransitScreen provides a range of information on nearby neighbourhood amenities such as live crowd estimates, service disruption alerts and walking distance in minutes to stations or stops.
