As part of WMATA’s initiative to give customers real-time departure bus information, 110 solar-powered, Connectpoint® Digital Bus Stops have been deployed along Columbia Pike, one of Metro’s busiest transit service lines and other locations. In addition to real-time bus information, customized alert messaging is available so riders can adjust their journey quickly and make smart choices based on the easy-to-read, ePaper Digital Bus Stops.
At Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority our customers’ experience is a top priority, and Connectpoint’s Digital Bus Stops are playing a key role. The ePaper displays provide the flexibility and readability needed to broadcast a variety of content including next departures, service alerts, maps and custom messages.
“Not only will this be a better experience for our riders, these digital bus stops have low power requirements and allow us to power signs without a connection to the grid.”
“Metro is notable for its transit initiatives when it comes to new customer amenities,” adds Rick Wood, CEO and president of Connectpoint. “Sustainable, easy-to-read, real-time digital bus stops are in line with what today’s transit rider wants and needs to navigate their trip.”
