CHK America officially launched its latest product under its new Connectpoint® Digital Division, the Connectpoint Dashboard, an interface that provides real-time data for public transit options on existing or newly installed infrastructure. Santa Clara Valley (Calif.) Transportation Authority (VTA) is the first transit agency to utilize the new Connectpoint Dashboard, installed at the reception area of their headquarters for staff and visitors.

The Connectpoint Dashboard displays rail and bus services, BikeShare, a local map and features real-time alerts. Uber and Lyft information can also be added, together with any additional information an agency may need.  

“The Dashboard product is a powerful platform for communicating real-time service information to our customers,” added Gary Miskell Chief Technology Officer at VTA.  “Displaying location specific information provides all customers, even those without a smartphone, greater certainty about their travel plans.”
The new Connectpoint Dashboard complements CHK America’s previously announced Connectpoint Digital suite of products including:

  • The web-enabled Connectpoint® Interactive Touchscreen Kiosks, recently installed by Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Pittsburgh’s Port Authority of Allegheny County and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada.
  • The solar- or battery-powered Connectpoint® Digital Bus Stop, has been deployed by Port Authority of Allegheny County and is pending installation at agencies throughout the country as well as in private industry.
