Papercast e-paper bus stop displays were a hit at APTA Expo
We’ve been to many industry Expos in our time, but never before have we been greeted with such a positive reaction than that we received at this year’s APTA Expo in Atlanta.
Following an incredibly busy year, with two major product enhancements and many successful pilot deployments with leading transport agencies around the world, we firmly believe that e-paper digital bus stop displays are the technology of the future. The message we took away from APTA is that this is very much the reality, and Papercast e-paper displays have become the solution of choice.
Our entire senior team attended the event and Papercast e-paper digital bus stop displays featured on two of our partner stands:
CHK America booth #2140
NEC booth #2147
