Bijou Properties unveils first TransitScreen Displays in New Jersey

Hoboken, NJ — In an effort to champion responsible transportation and support smart urban growth, Bijou Properties has partnered with TransitScreen in Hoboken to provide real-time, location-based transportation availability to residents 24 hours a day. Updates from NJ Transit bus & rail, PATH, and NY Waterway ferry are showcased on two large HD TVs in the lobby of Bijou’s Park + Garden, a luxury apartment building designed for LEED Gold certification. Bijou’s TransitScreen displays are the first installations in New Jersey and second in the Metro NY region. “We utilized innovative green building practices and modern technology at Park + Garden to create a sustainable urban apartment building for residents,” said Larry Bijou, managing partner of Bijou Properties. “TransitScreen plays an important role in this by providing real-time, detailed information on NY Waterway, PATH, and NJ Transit to encourage use of mass transportation options, as well as local bike and car share services. This pioneering system will enhance our residents’ daily lives and support our goal of promoting a healthier, cleaner lifestyle for residents at Park + Garden and throughout the City of Hoboken.”
