Roadify distributes this content via its own mobile apps, 3rd party apps, websites and public signage. Roadify is currently the only company with meaningful scale that provides transit information for display in the Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) signage market-- on public screens at locations outside of stations.

Eddie Jabbour, Cofounder, KickMap

The KickMap was created by Eddie Jabbour, a principal at Kick Design in 2007. It was conceived as a communication design exercise to make the vast complexity of the NYC Subway System more comprehensible to natives and tourists alike. Posted on its own website, the KickMap quickly garnered very favorable response in the press and design blogs worldwide and prominent inclusion in eight books on mapping and information design.

Dan Jabbour, Cofounder, KickMap

Spurred by the creation of Apple's App Store in 2008, the NYC KickMap was transformed into a dynamic mobile app by Dan Jabbour of ThunkLabs. He turned the KickMap into a responsive map with an intuitive user interface that multiplied its strengths. Utilizing multi-layered maps, it presents the user with information like night service, on-map step-by-step directions, street maps and train schedules for every station location, push notification alerts, and GPS positioning.
