Schedule displays are crucial for travelers using public transportation. Going beyond a scrolling list of arrivals and departures, a digital signage system is flexible and can adapt to a wide variety of needs. Display boards can be used for entertainment, advertising, local attractions or safety tips. The attraction of digital signage and quality content has been proven to positively distract people in a queue while creating the illusion of shorter wait times. We all know that public transportation experiences its share of delays and layovers.
Today the transportation industry is using digital signage to:
- Gain advertising revenue
- Facilitate wayfinding maps
- Broadcast emergency alerts and instructions
- Facilitate the efficient flow of foot traffic
- Promote safety
- Provide travel tips
