Air travelers landing in Dallas now have a new way to plan their ground travel before leaving the airport, thanks to Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the ConnectPoint® Interactive Touchscreen Kiosk from CHK America.
The first display of its kind put in service by DART, the kiosk provides interactive information for the seven million passengers arriving in Dallas each year to help them transition from airline travel to DART rail and bus services. The interactive kiosks provide route information into wayfinding messages that users can easily read and understand.
The web-enabled ConnectPoint® Interactive Touchscreen Kiosk integrates with tracking and location systems, scheduling systems and other DART information systems to provide comprehensive information to customers. Touchscreen technology allows for intuitive interaction with the information to explore transit options and to create specific routes, including an overview of entire routes, next departure times as well as detailed local mapping for each stop.
The kiosks also provide trip-planning tools that include detailed travel directions for public transportation, cars, bicycling and walking. Texting and email options are also included for easy transfer to a mobile device.
The kiosk also has the ability to push out route deviations as they happen, generate revenue via location-based advertising and leverages smart phones at the decision-making point.
