When your students, employees, or visitors rely on public transport to get from A to B, they probably turn to their phones for updates & directions.
Imagine if you could make it easier for them to find out when and where they need to catch their next ride (Hint - it involves using your screens instead of theirs 🤓)
Bring Updates to Your Audience ✔️
Fugo's Transit app lets you centralize all nearby public transit schedules into one place - your screen!
Get real-time updates on all the buses, metros, trams, and other transport within half a mile radius (1000 meters) of your location! It works beautifully 😍 in all sorts of use cases:
Hotels who want to help their guests discover the city with public transport
Schools and universities whose students depend on local transport for traveling to & from campus
Company campuses where employees need to keep a close eye on departure times in order to get home to their families
Co-Working spaces where remote workers might need to catch a bus back home our onto their next adventure
Venues that may host out-of-town travelers and event attendees who want to get the layout of the locale
With Fugo's Transit App You Can:
Set your location to your exact address
Show real-time schedules for buses, metros, trams, trains, and more (see all the kinds of transport coverage available here)
Determine the radius of departure stops to include between 0-1000 metres
Add schedules for one or more modes of transit to your transit dashboard
Here’s how to get started!
Note: there are two ways to add content with Fugo - via our playlist builder and in our design studio. We’ll cover the steps for both methods in each section.
1. Using the playlist builder
1.1 Log into your Fugo Account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can start your 14-day free trial here.
1.2 Click Apps in the top navigation bar to get to our app store.
1.3 Scroll to find the Transit app in the store. To find it even faster, you can search for it via the search bar at the top of the store.
1.4 Click Try App to create a new playlist with the app.
1.5 A window will appear where you can customize the app’s settings.
1.6 Set your location to your exact address.
1.7 Determine the radius of departure stops to include between 0-1000 meters.
1.8 Add schedules for one or more modes of transit to your transit dashboard.
1.9 You can scroll through your teams to select the one you want to display.
1.10 Next, set the duration for the app (this determines how long your app will display.)
💡 Hint: Cmd/Ctrl + Click to select multiple types of transport
1.11 Once you’re all done, click Save Changes in the bottom right corner!
To continue on to publishing instructions from here, you can skip to section 3: build out your playlist.
2. Using the Design Studio
2.1Click Studio in the top navigation bar. Then click Create in Studio to start a new design.
2.2 This will open up a blank canvas for you to start adding content to! To add the Transit app, either scroll to find it in the Apps menu to the left or search for it to find it faster.
2.3 Drag and drop the app onto your canvas from the menu. Or simply click on it and it will be added to your current slide.
2.4 You can drag the sizing handles of the app around to change the size. Make it smaller so you can split your screen and add other content, or make it full screen - that’s totally up to you!
2.5 Customizing the Transit app settings works the same way in the design studio - all settings will be found in the panel to the left. To bring up the panel, click on the app from the canvas.
You can continue to customize your content however you wish in the studio! Add media from one of our integrations, add stickers, use frames to create unique media stylings. Add slides with extra or duplicate content. You can even split your screen into zones!
2.6 When you’re satisfied with how your content looks, click Save and Close. This will close out the design studio. To publish this content, you’ll need to add it to a playlist, which we’ll cover in the next section.
3. Build out your playlist
Note: If you want to add content you created in the studio to a playlist. You’ll need to navigate to the Playlists page by clicking Playlists in the top navigation bar and Create Playlist to start a new playlist.
3.1 Give your playlist a name (we suggest making it something relevant to distinguish it from other playlists later on down the road.)
3.2 Click Select Screens to choose where to publish your playlist.
3.3 You can also add more content to your playlist by clicking Add More Content and choosing other apps, uploading media, or from the content that you created in the studio.
I want to add the Transit content I created in section 2 above, so I'm going to find it by clicking Studio Content and searching for it in my content library.
3.4 When you've selected all the content items you want to add to this playlist, click Add Items in the bottom right corner.
3.5 Finally, you can change the schedule of your content by setting the start and end date and clicking Week Schedule to edit the days and times your content will run.
3.5 Once you’re all done setting up the playlist, click Publish in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.
3.6 If you don’t want to publish just yet, you can click Finish Later and come back to your playlist at any time.
