Why are digital information signs becoming so widely accepted at bus stops?
Research has shown that passengers are less impatient at a bus stop when they can see in REAL TIME how many minutes before the next bus arrives. That means they are more satisfied and will use bus service more frequently.
Compare bus stop digital signs with static printed timetables. Bus stop digital sign:
- Offer 24/7 up-to-date departure times and schedules
- Don’t need to be manually replaced on a regular basis
- Offer periodical service information and instant alerts about changes
NOW it is possible for you to provide these advantages with a solar-powered, environmentally friendly, cost-saving device.
Are you aware of the latest trends in urban transportation?

There is a right way and a wrong way to deploy digital bus stop signage
In the past, the installation of LED display screens was costly and impractical. It involved complicated electrical hookups. Even when power sources were available, the construction costs associated with digging a trench for installation of conduit could be prohibitive. With limited funding, that meant fewer signs could be installed. Often the cost of construction was greater than the cost of the product. This meant that fewer signs were installed. The majority continued to be equipped with printed timetables.
Now, with the arrival of solar powered e-TelaTM bus stop digital sign, the future of bus stop digitalization couldn’t be brighter. The installation is straightforward, requiring only standard tools. It can be executed by two installers in less than one hour. And it requires no digging.
But beware! Not all of these outdoor display solutions provide the same performance!
