This is the EyeStop Bus Stop developed by MIT’s Senseable Lab.
The EyeStop is partially covered with touch-sensitive e-INK and screens, and features state-of-the art sensing technologies and a variety of interactive services. Riders can plan a bus trip on an interactive map, surf the Web, monitor their real-time exposure to pollutants and use their mobile devices as an interface with the bus shelter. They can also post ads and community announcements to an electronic bulletin board at the bus stop, enhancing the EyeStop’s functionality as a community gathering space.
- UDB Holds Firm: The state of Florida’s 1st District Court of Appeal upheld an administrative ruling rejecting Miami-Dade County approval of a Lowes outside the Urban Development Boundary. Thank you county commissioners for wasting our tax dollars fighting a policy the majority of people in the county support.
- It’s about time: the County Commission wants to improve hand-held applications for transit users. More on this soon…
- Transit Education Committee: The Mayor has been accused of using paid transit employees to counter his recall. Sigh…
- Reconnecting America just released its annual report about New and Small starts Federal transit funding…Surprise! Miami is not on the list.
- Commissioners vote to move forward with the next round of ‘Building Better Community’ bonds.
The bond sale will be done through the Building Better Communities project, a $2.93 billion capital improvements program approved overwhelmingly by voters back in 2004… Commissioner Carlos Gimenez said that while the projects are laudable, he opposed the measure because it relies on a commission move last September to raise the property-tax rate that goes to pay for county debt, to 44.5 cents per $1,000 of a property’s assessed value.
Check out the list of projects and see what you think. The list lacks details, but includes a couple of bike projects, lots of park projects, and an slew of other water/sewer, public service, community, and safety facilities.
