RTA passenger information signs collect real-time bus arrival information and display it in an easily readable form for waiting passengers and commuters.
Using Google’s GTFS protocol we monitor the location of specific buses and compare it with the scheduled service. A calculation is made and an accurate estimation of the arrival time for the bus is determined.
The information is communicated to passengers though dedicated electronic LED bus signs located throughout the bus station or stop.
Designed to maximise passenger satisfaction and avoid frustration over extended wait times, accuracy & reliability were key in our design. Commuters can be confident of their next bus arrival time.
A software interface enables easy access by transport operators to immediately display community announcements and service alerts in real time as required.
Through a centralised server information is communicated to the sign via a mobile data connection without the need for additional equipment at either the stop or on the bus.
Once configured the sign will operate with no further intervention.
