by Brianna Crandall — March 20, 2017 — In keeping with its commitment to leverage cutting-edge technology to transform commercial real estate, global financial and professional services firm JLL is raising the bar in property management with a recently announced partnership with TransitScreen, a Washington, DC-based company that provides live displays of comprehensive transportation data in the lobbies of commercial office buildings.​

TransitScreen will provide live displays of comprehensive transportation data in the lobbies of JLL-managed commercial office buildings across the country (shown: Verizon Center).

JLL is bringing TransitScreen’s technology to buildings across the nation. The product includes real-time arrival information for trains, subways, ferries, buses, bikeshare, carshare, rideshare, traffic, and more. These lobby displays give tenants control over their commutes while also promoting sustainable choices.

Dan Pufunt, JLL president of Property Management, stated:

One of our top priorities is helping our office tenants live better lives, both at work and outside of the office.  Giving them access to the latest technology that simplifies their commute and showcases green transportation options is a top priority for us. We’re known for our innovative approach to product development as well as our investment in data research. This will make it easy to minimize the environmental impact on buildings across our portfolio and drive value to our tenants and our clients.

In addition to lobby displays, TransitScreen also offers TransitScreenGO, a mobile-accessible version of the transportation data that can be pulled up on any phone or personal digital device.

Ryan Croft, TransitScreen co-founder and COO, added:

Our mission is to save people time and reduce the carbon impact to and from buildings nationwide. We are excited to partner with an innovative industry leader like JLL to help us have a greater impact on life inside buildings and across cities.
