The Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) awarded Connectpoint a new contract for multiple digital signage products, including the six-time award-winning Connectpoint® Digital Bus Stop displays, to be deployed throughout the transit system.
The first tranche of digital signage products to be installed will be the company’s solar-powered 13-inch Digital Bus Stop Displays, to be deployed at GRTC’s Downtown Transfer Station in downtown Richmond. The signage will also include the award-winning Falcon, an ADA Text to Speech device. GRTC will deploy additional signage from Connectpoint’s suite of products that also include the Digital Bus Stop available in three additional sizes — 22-, 32-, and 42-inches — as well as LED signage options.
“The addition of Connectpoint’s digital signage to GRTC’s new Downtown Transfer Station is a crucial element in enhancing the customer experience,” said GRTC CEO, Sheryl Adams. “We are happy that the signage will not only increase the functionality of the Downtown Transfer Station but will also provide GRTC customers with real time information which will help them reach their destinations.”
Connectpoint drives the digitalization of cities through an integrated system of information about the status of transportation systems. The Digital Bus Stop® is an advanced solar-powered (or A/C) wireless ePaper digital sign that provides real-time public transportation information 24/7 that can be quickly installed on poles, at shelters, or in a stand-alone fabricated pylon. The company’s products are used at rail stations, transit hubs, and bus stops.
Connectpoint serves 26 transit agencies in the U.S. and has thousands of displays in the field, giving millions of riders information each year.
