TouchSource is located in Colorado, less than 20 miles from the state’s capital, Denver. As one of the fastest growing cities in America, Denver is facing some growing pains as millennials pour into the city in pursuit of employment, lifestyle, and adventure. With the sudden influx of a new workforce, the morning and afternoon commute has become a challenge for those commuting in and out of the city daily.
While public transportation is appealing in order to avoid the congested car commute, Denver’s public transportation system has had trouble keeping up with the population growth. New rail lines are being built and bus lines are being opened, but even with these additions commuters aren’t finding the system very easy to use. There is a lack of schedule information available outside the internet for commuters, which makes catching a ride in a hurry more difficult to do. Also, with many stations and stops being so new, many people who could benefit from public transportation may not know that it is an option in their home or office’s area.

With major highways with 75 MPH speed limits reduced to a slow crawl and smog alerts issued regularly, how can the quickly growing city adapt? How can building managers demonstrate to their tenants that they are aware of and empathetic to their problems and, more importantly, convince them to stay when their employees are growing wary of the drive? How can they convince tenants to take public transit, consequently freeing up precious parking space, when no one is quite sure when their ride is coming and where to catch it?
TouchSource presents a solution for these issues: our Transit feature, one of the many great capabilities of our interactive directories. With this bundle, you can provide your tenants and visitors (and even your staff!) with live transit information for trains, buses, Ubers, Lyfts, and other public transit options available in your area. Designed with sleek, clean graphics, this information can be displayed within your touch screen directory.

One of the best parts of supplying this information is that it takes no effort on your part to bring this great information to your tenants and visitors. Since the interactive lobby directory equipped with Transit was installed at the Centerral building, a commercial real estate office in Denver, property manager Georgia Ramirez of Stream Realty hasn’t suffered from any extra work. “It was set up during the initial set up and we have not had to change it since.” She stated when asked how her experience with Transit has been.
Transit information was the perfect addition to Ms. Ramirez’s interactive directory, as the property tenants could benefit from its display of upcoming train schedules at a nearby stop. “We are close to the light rail line.” She explained to me, “[The] Colorado stop is within walking distance of our building.” It was the perfect fit for her building’s commuters!
When a prospective or current tenant can see the value that building management places on keeping tenants happy, they are more likely to join or stay in the building. Give your tenants a much needed break from the hectic day by providing them information on how to get home in the quickest and easiest way. Save them time and stress-and better yet-save yourself the work and preserve your building’s scarce and expensive parking resources. TouchSource’s Transit feature is the perfect addition to your touch screen lobby directory or directory kiosk.
“At first I was wary about ordering an electronic directory but after working with your support team we absolutely love them and it’s always so nice and easy to work with support from your company.”Property Manager, Cincinnati, OH
“After working with old-fashioned directory strips, I can’t believe
how easy it is to update my TouchSource Directory from my desk!”Property Manager, Seattle, WA
“I’ve been thrilled with the product. I can’t tell you how great it is to log in, type out an entry, and then have it appear. Ordering little plastic strips (that can cost an arm and a leg), getting the formatting right, getting them installed – I’ll never go back! You’ve earned a very loyal customer.”Tenant Coordinator, Washington, DC
