Transit Board is a web browser interface designed to be used in a fixed location, perhaps as a kiosk or as an intranet page for a company office, allowing users to see multiple transit lines departing from a particular place or general vicinity.
One TMA has already implemented it.
There are two ways to set up a Transit Board. One requires help from the admins at Portland Transport, the other can be done on a do-it-yourself basis.
The first model requires defining something we call a 'choice set', which is a list of transit stops and specific lines that serve them. If you'd like to do this, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work with you. With the custom approach we can tailor colors and create special messages as well.The do-it-yourself form just requires a URL with a list of stops.
