Captivate And TransitScreen Partner, Creating First All-In-One Solution For Real-Time Transit Data, Curated Content
August 27, 2019 — Captivate, commercial real estate’s number one digital media amenity, today announced a new partnership with TransitScreen, bringing real-time information on nearby transportation options – from public transit to bikeshare, carshare, and ridehailing services – to Captivate’s network of multipurpose display screens.
With this partnership, Captivate has created a unique value proposition for property managers, who typically purchase separate solutions to showcase transit information. Captivate now offers the only solution on the market that combines the power of real-time transit information curated by location alongside hand-curated content (across national/business news, sports, and lifestyle) and dynamic communication tools. This combination of relevant and engaging media along with valuable, up to the minute transit data means tenants can leave their workday armed with commuter information and the headlines that matter.
“We strive to deliver amenities to our real estate partners that will increase the value of their property and can assist in tenant attraction and retention,” said Alice Gogh, VP Product Management & Strategy at Captivate. “This alliance will ease the tenant burden of unpredictable public transportation changes, particularly during rush hour. With the support of TransitScreen, Captivate is making an investment in delivering a new level of convenience but also an environmentally conscious and sustainability solution for the real estate community overall.”
Now available in Captivate’s Large Format Display and easily accessible through the Custom Content Window online portal, TransitScreen helps tenants take control with real-time transit data, customized with the most relevant information. Transportation data depends on building proximity, primarily covering a five-block radius, and is updated every two to three seconds.
“For most people, commuting to work is a time consuming, expensive, and stress-inducing start and end to their day. TransitScreen transforms this experience by making public transit choices within the immediate vicinity more accessible,” said Tony Hudgins, VP of Partnerships at TransitScreen. “We’re proud to partner with Captivate to bring our real-time transportation data to busy professionals across the country and bring about our shared vision of a smarter, more sustainable future.”
