a proposal for information displays to be placed in main streetside entrance of the planned Transbay Transit Center & Tower in downtown San Francisco. the displays are meant to convey live graphic train scheduling, & densities in the urban fabric formed by the intersection of various transit routes.
trains, buses & other transit types are tracked, & their positions & times to departure are indicated by their distance from the outside edge of the building. over time, passengers could develop a mental model of the transit system at various times throughout the day.
in an alternative concept, a live display of the various transportation networks reveals the current state to the travelers, to allow them to understand the current range of transportation possibilities available to them, & make better decisions on where to go and when.
