Daktronics announces $3.2M NYCT signage order

Posted on October 7, 2015

Daktronics announced a $3.2 million order for Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) New York City Transit, provider of mass transit services in New York City.

Daktronics has a highly visible presence in the system and with an order for 630 6mm rail platform displays to guide and inform visitors, this contract marks the largest mass transit digital display purchase in the company’s history.

With millions of subway passengers seeing the displays on a daily basis, Daktronics plays an integral role in helping to keep passengers informed with timely and effective messaging.

The multi-colored LED displays, part of the subway system’s Public Address Customer Information System, will feature next train arrival and destination information as well as graphical information. A text to speech function aids visually impaired transit riders with clear and easy to access messaging.
