Transport for NSW and State Transit are currently conducting trial of two E-Ink Papercast Real Time Data displays. They have been installed at Town Hall Stand K and QVB Stand B.
These displays provide real time schedules and capacity levels on upcoming services. They also have space for service alerts to let customers know about delays, service alterations, all stop boarding amongst other things.
It is hoped that if the trial is successful that these signs will be able to be rolled out to more bus stops, initially in the Sydney CBD and then into major centres.
The displays are powered by solar panels and take up as much space as current model bus signage, making them a suitable alternative to existing hard paper signage
