If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already noticed that Remix looks a little different. So, why the new layout? The decision was driven by many months of user feedback, research and testing to make Remix more user friendly and intuitive.
With that being said, let's take a tour!
Below are the main enhancements we’ve made to the Remix platform.
We’ve added a header to the home screen to ensure that you have the information you need in one place. You now have links to About Remix, Help, and Updates on your home screen, and you can also access previously used maps and create new projects. For those who use Remix for both transit planning and street planning, this new home screen will enable you to toggle between different Remix functionality.
Probably the most notable visual change: we moved line and timetable info from the right side of the screen to the left, for a more intuitive view (since people read left to right).
Here are a few other changes we’ve made to improve your user experience:
Based on the feedback we’ve heard, new views have been added to the timetable function. We now offer Split, Full, and Map views.
The new split view is especially important to our customers, as it enables them to make a change and instantly see the impact on service hours for costing. They can also more easily see the relationship between frequency windows and trips.
All of these enhancements are available today to Remix users. And, don’t panic. While we moved buttons around, the functionality you know and love is still in Remix — only even easier to access.
As always, we’re eager to hear what you think. If you have any feedback or questions, please contact your Customer Success Manager and they will be delighted to assist you with showing off the new layout.
When planned well, flexible mobility programs, like paratransit, demand response, shared on-demand, or microtransit services, can support broader city goals of increasing access and decreasing congestion.
