Antelope Valley Transit completes digital sign installation

Posted on June 9, 2015

Lancaster, Calif.’s Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) finalized the installation of digital LED signs that display up-to-the-minute bus departure information at both transportation centers in Lancaster and Palmdale.

The digital signs are the latest component in the transit agency's Track-It Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), which was launched in January of this year, providing 24/7 access to current bus departure information for customers using their computer or smartphone via GPS.

The Track-It system is being successfully used by many AVTA customers, and the digital signs will further enhance the convenience of having real-time bus information at their fingertips.

Customers at Lancaster City Park can view bus information on one of four bright, easy-to-read signs, which were mounted to the light poles located in the middle of the transit platform.

At the Palmdale Transportation Center, a total of five digital signs were installed, with one in each bus shelter and one inside the waiting area.

The ever-changing signs display real-time bus departure information for all routes, as well as the current date and time, which is synchronized with fleet operations and a scrolling message line. There is also an audio button, that when pressed, will audibly announce the information that is currently displayed on the sign to aid sight impaired customers.

AVTA has been working for almost two years with Avail Technologies, which designed and implemented the Track-It ITS system. The installation of the digital signs is one of the final phases of the ITS project. The CDP Series signs were manufactured by Sunrise Systems Inc.
