Enhancing the journey for Philadelphians, commuters, and visitors in one of the busiest transit hubs in the city, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and Intersection are teaming up to deliver new digital services-Wi-Fi, interactive information kiosks, and device charging-to customers at its Suburban Station.
The more than 25,000 customers who are served by Suburban Station each day now have access to free gigabit high-speed Wi-Fi, 10 new interactive kiosks that offer real-time transit information, interactive wayfinding and maps, and two device charging stations that will be installed soon.
In addition to the Suburban Station upgrades, Intersection will deploy nearly 300 new interactive digital displays with real-time train updates across subway and commuter rail lines. This initiative will provide riders with information to ease their commutes and advertisers with more opportunities to reach their audiences, according to SEPTA.
"We are delighted that this partnership brings huge benefits to our riders at no cost to taxpayers," said SEPTA's GM Jeffrey D. Knueppel. "From high-speed Wi-Fi to device charging, to interactive directions, to better access of real-time information and alerts, it's a win-win to continually think about how we can modernize our customers' experiences."
