On your next shopping spree at the Tysons Corner Center mall, take a quick glance at the four-by-six-foot screen above the exit and you’ll find out precisely when your next Metro is coming.

The display was set up Wednesday by TransitScreen, a local company that makes displays of public transportation schedules, in partnership with engineering group Wells + Associates. The companies are teaming up to develop solutions to change travel behaviors in Tysons Corner.

By showing local schedules for the Silver Line Metro and the 18 Metro bus routes that serve Tysons Corner, the screen will help “teach travelers about the multiple options of transportation to and from Tysons Corner other than their single-occupancy vehicles,” spokesman Graham Caywood said in an email.

In March, TransitScreen installed a 55-inch display at George Washington University’s new Science and Engineering Hall, which will soon include a live map of the school’s shuttles. Later last month, Montgomery County unveiled TransitScreen displays on two local government buildings in Rockville.

The company spun out of Arlington County’s Mobility Lab, and was launched commercially by Ryan Croft and Matt Caywood in early 2013. It started out as a bootstrapped company but raised $600,000 in angel funding earlier this year.

With a dozen full-time employees, the company is now located in 1776 and in Code For America’s San Francisco offices.
