We announced this week that we're partnering with real-time mobility data platform TransitScreen.
Washington DC-based TransitScreen displays all transportation options at a glance, in real time, enabling users to compare nearby public transit arrivals and find availability for bike-share, car-share, and ride-hailing services. With a focus on environmental sustainability, a commitment to open-data standards, and an aim to increase accessibility, TransitScreen’s modus operandi aligns well with our pledge to sustainability, transparency, connectivity and efficiency.
“We’re excited to partner with Bixby to offer this information to residents,” said TransitScreen cofounder Ryan Croft. “Access to mobility options Is more important than ever in choosing and living in an apartment, and we want to make it easier.”
This partnership enables us to add real-time transportation information to its growing list of benefits for building residents. As our Founder & CEO Mark Smukler recently explained, “Our goal is to make apartment living more comfortable and convenient than ever. To really create change for apartment residents, we have to work with companies like TransitScreen to provide a comprehensive, integrated, and seamless user experience.”
The partnership offers benefits mutual to both companies. “Our business philosophies around creating smarter cities and using open data standards are very similar and there are obvious synergies that stem from our collaboration. We are able to use their platform to augment our offering to building residents, while TransitScreen leverages our user base to expand their presence and reach, particularly in multifamily real estate,” Smukler further explained.
