The APTAtech Conference will help the industry to rise to the challenges of the ever-evolving transportation landscape and ridership.
Improving the passenger experience
Transport authorities and operators around the world strive to improve the passenger experience and increase ridership, it has been widely recognised that providing accurate real-time passenger information is a valuable contributor. It enables travellers to more efficiently plan their trips and the transit agency to improve performance. Additionally, providing live arrival times, wayfinding, traffic or public safety and emergency information at the bus stop removes uncertainty, decreases perceived wait times and improves satisfaction.
The Papercast e-paper passenger information display system has been developed specifically to help public transport providers to achieve this goal. The displays can be easily installed within hours and without the requirement to dig holes into roads or pavements, allowing transport authorities to provide real-time bus arrivals and other service information to passengers at bus stops where it previously would not have been feasible.
- Papercast Displays: Due to the unique attributes of e-paper, Papercast displays are readable from all angles under direct sunlight, delivering a superior user experience. Couple this with our industry-leading power efficiency – Papercast displays can operate outdoors on a long-life battery for up to 5 years or solar powered rechargeable batteries – making it one of the most sustainable outdoor display solutions available.
- Content Management: Wirelessly connected to the cloud-based management system which seamlessly integrates with CAL/AVL data for live content updates, the display content can be updated with just a few clicks. It is packed with features designed to help public transport providers to show a wide range of real-time and static travel information, in a clear and visually striking graphical format.
Completely standalone, Papercast displays can be installed anywhere, off-the-grid in a matter of hours.
We look forward to seeing you there!
