Bus Stop Information Boards

‘Urban’ is a full-stack ePaper solution for city transport authorities to display real-time arrivals, service notifications and site-specific information on a city-wide basis, even in the most demanding locations. 

No expensive infrastructure investment is necessary. The ePaper units operate completely independently from the city’s electrical supply network, powered only by solar cells. All data is updated in real time via the cellular network. 


'Urban' ePaper displays are designed to provide up to date arrival times at any bus, tramway or light rail stop along busy urban public transport routes. All information is updated in real-time via the inbuilt modem and connection to the cellular network.

Powered only by small PV cells and a storage battery, 'Urban' display modules can be located in any location, completely independent of mains power. The displays use exceptionally low power in normal operation, only requiring extra power for the LED side lights at night.

The displays are supplied in two standard sizes:
'Urban' - 17" H x 9 1/2" W x 3" D
'Urban Dual' - 30" H x 9 1/2" W x 3" D

"Urban' ePaper displays can help significantly in implementing effective transit management systems. Easily manage critical city corridors and peak hours. Increase public transport ridership.

Develop a new era of public transport interactivity with cutting edge signage technology.
