junaio to integrate TriMet transit data

Posted on June 2, 2010

Last week, Portland, Ore.-based TriMet announced a partnership with junaio, a provider of interactive Web-based information and services, to integrate transit data ranging from station locations and bus routes, to estimated arrival times, into a TriMet channel on the junaio 2.0 mobile augmented reality platform.

 

Available free of charge on the iPhone 3GS and coming soon to Android devices, junaio 2.0 features the TriMet channel to give riders easy and instant access to complete transit information on nearby stops by simply pointing their phone around them.

 

The app for the iPhone 3GS or for any Android device works by letting the user pan around with the phone's viewfinder and then marking nearby transit stops, distances, and real-time live schedules of upcoming transit. For example, a rider, by simply pointing the phone's camera, can find the direction of the nearest bus station and gets a list of estimated arrivals for the next several buses to their destination.

 

By subscribing to TriMet's channel on the junaio 2.0 application, users can access information on nearby transit stops through a digital overlay made possible by utilizing the phone's compass and GPS. Users can also browse stops and schedules nearby within a specified radius using the Map and List view feature.
