ALEXANDRIA, Va. - April 20, 2017 - PRLog -- NYC Ferry by Hornblower is almost ready to launch, bringing a new way to commute between the boroughs of New York City. Travelers won't have to guess when their ship will come in, as ferry landings will feature real-time departure information on Redmon Group Transit Displays. The digital displays show up-to-the-minute ferry boarding and departure times alongside commuter alerts, nearby bus information, and nearby Citi Bike availability.

"We are thrilled to be working with NYC Ferry," said John Redmon, Principal of Redmon Group. "The ferries will be another great way to commute to and from the city and our Transit Displays will help inform and encourage people to access multimodal transit."

Paul Lambson, Head of Customer Success at NYC Ferry says, "We are excited about this partnership with Redmon Group. Their proven transit solutions including various integrations with other forms of transportation and real-time updates will add value to our riders' experience. Having the status of our operation readily available to all our riders is an important part of helping NYC Ferry create amazing experiences."

The Redmon Group Transit Display is the first of its kind to bring public transit information from multiple modes, agencies, and locations into one, easy-to-read, digital display. Now with hundreds of active displays up and down the East Coast, Redmon leads the industry in multi-modal travel information screens, deploying the first Transit Displays in 2003 in the Washington DC metro area. The Transit Display brings real-time and GTFS transit information, such as arrivals for bus, rail, bike share and car share availability, and traffic conditions together alongside travel alerts, news, advertising, or social media feeds. Redmon's robust content management system, the backbone of Transit Displays, is built for reliable 24/7 up-time, ensuring passengers always have the travel information they need.

Along with the Transit Displays, Redmon will deploy "Push-to-Talk" text-to-speech devices. The system, created exclusively by Redmon, allows a sight-impaired passenger to get the same on-screen real-time arrival information quickly.

Whether by train, trolley, bus, bike, or now boat, Redmon's Transit Display provides passengers reliable information when and where they need it.
