Papercast Ltd, a global leader in solar powered e-paper passenger information displays, proudly announces its partnership with Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF) in a transformative public transportation project in Bali, Indonesia.

TMF leads the initiative to address critical urban mobility challenges, including congestion, parking availability, public transport utilisation and air pollution. TMF, a non-profit organisation leveraging expertise from Toyota and its partners, drives transformative mobility initiatives in different markets, prioritising safety, technology and environmental solutions.

Named TMF SMART@Ubud, the project encompasses two core components:

Powered by solar panels, Papercast’s 23” outdoor e-paper displays will be strategically installed at bus stops to show real-time bus arrival information, route details, marketing content and other essential updates, in both Indonesian and English to support the local community and the large number of tourists that visit the region.

Papercast’s displays, renowned for exceptional energy efficiency and resilience under extreme weather conditions, provide an ideal outdoor solution. With successful deployments in over 45 countries, the technology is particularly well suited to public transit environments in hot and humid locations such as Bali.

The project’s launch event on 24th August welcomed 150 distinguished attendees, including senior stakeholders from the region’s transportation authorities. The event will provide an opportunity for industry leaders, stakeholders and the public to witness the transformational impact of Papercast’s technology on the future of transportation.
