Transit Boards Get a Little Simpler and More Flexible

We’re starting to see our Transit Board™ tool show up in some interesting places.

And now we’ve made it even simpler to use.

Previously there were two ways set up a ‘place’ for a Transit Board:

  • Use our generic look & feel and specify a series of stop ids for the listing
  • Have us create a custom ‘choice set’ for you that could include customized text, colors and sizes and specific choices of transit lines.

Now we’ve combined the best of both worlds! We can create a choice set for you that specifies custom look and feel, and then you can combine that with a list of stop ids. That way we can put in the effort once to get a customized look for you, and after that you build as many Transit Boards as you want.

Here’s the hybrid URL format:

http://tsrf.us/cgi-bin/tboard.pl?id=<choice_set_id>&banner=<title text>&stop=<stop 1>&stop=<stop 2>&…

For example

http://tsrf.us/cgi-bin/tboard.pl?id=rideconnection&banner=Goodwill%20SE%2092nd%20and%20Powell&stop=4704&stop=4706&stop=8023&stop=8024
