[i-metro] is an interactive information commons situated within metro stations, providing free locative and comprehensive travel-related information in real-time. Information is displayed through a touch screen interface similar to a vastly oversized iphone providing travelers with access to maps, timetables, ticket reservations – thus transforming the urban experience through layered opportunities and data most useful on the go. Transit riders may also upload their own content through messaging and geo-tagging. [i-metro] contributes to new forms of public engagement by creating socially rich glocal nodes for public benefit by linking the scale of the webpage to that of the city in real time.
