PittSmartLiving display in the historic City-County Building in downtown Pittsburgh.

We are excited to have a new PittSmartLiving display go live today, in the lobby of the historic City-County Building, which is celebrating its Centennial this year. The display provides location-specific real-time information about:

  • Port Authority bus arrivals
  • HealthyRide bicycle availability
  • Lyft availability
  • Zipcar availability
  • Current Weather

This makes the Pittsburgh City Hall the 10th City Hall in the USA that has a TransitScreen installation. The transportation data can be accessed at http://tsgo.io/pghcityhall (even from your mobile phone).

This is the sixth display of the PittSmartLiving pilot project which aims to evaluate the benefits of making multimodal transportation information available in real-time to city-dwellers. One big benefit of public displays is that they “democratize” information (according to Ms. Karina Ricks, Director of Mobility and Infrastructure for the City of Pittsburgh), since they make high-quality information available to everybody, regardless of whether they have a smartphone or not. Another benefit is that the displays put all information about multiple modes of transportation in one place (no need to go through
multiple apps).

In addition to transportation-related data, the display also shows live the latest tweets from the feeds of:

If you have any feedback for this or any of the other PittSmartLiving displays, please contact us.
