updates when trains are delayed.
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.
