Real-Time Transit Data Display

Real-Time Transit Data Display

Client:  Metropolitan Transportation Commission
Tools:  Adobe Flash and ActionScript CS3, PHP

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) coordinates transportation for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. An important initiative is using the Internet to provide real-time transit data for multiple transit systems. ViewPoint Geography designed and built a display system to show real-time transit data on large video monitors in transit stations.

A custom Flash and ActionScript 3 program retrieves current transit data from MTC's server and then formats the data into an easy-to-read display. The initial implementation provides data for the BART and MUNI systems.
