The new app aims to al­low Tri-Rail pas­sen­gers to cal­cu­late their fares and track train lo­ca­tions in real time. The app also will pro­vide es­ti­mated ar­rival times, sta­tion in­for­ma­tion, and de­scrip­tions of points of in­ter­est at cer­tain stops, he said.

The app, which will be avail­able for both iOS and An­droid users, is ex­pected to take about five months to com­plete, Kennedy said.

Daruma Tech, which has been part of the Re­search Cen­ter for about three years, pre­vi­ously de­vel­oped apps for Viz­caya Mu­seum and Gar­dens in Mi­ami; a craft beer as­so­ci­a­tion in New York, Ver­mont, Wash­ing­ton; and the Marines, Kennedy said.

The com­pany also de­signed and main­tains a web­site for the Broward Met­ro­pol­i­tan Plan­ning Or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Kennedy said he hopes the Tri-Rail app de­vel­op­ment will lay the ground­work for sim­i­lar apps to be de­vel­oped by the com­pany.
