Electronic displays providing information about the public transport will be installed in Moscow for 350 public transport stops before the end of 2016, according to the website of the Moscow city administration citing the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development.
"About 350 public transport stops of a new type, with electronic displays will be installed in Moscow before the end of 2016. So that every Muscovite could quickly and comfortably get from point A to point B, electronic displays will inform citizens about the arrival time of ground transportation. They will be mounted to the navigation pylons, which will also contain information about the passing routes and maps of the area," the city administration said.
Currently Moscow has about 500 electronic information displays at bus stops, and five pavilions of the new format, equipped with electronic navigation pylons with electronic displays. "Currently we are carrying out pre-commissioning activities. In the near future the works will be completed, and new services will be available to every passenger,” the report said.
In total, by the end of 2016, 2,000 new public transport stops will be built in the city. 800 of them will have protective screens, anti-parking columns, litter boxes, as well as video surveillance cameras, Wi-Fi, USB-ports for charging mobile devices and new navigation system with maps of the city and route planning schemes. About 350 of them will be equipped with electronic navigation pylons with electronic displays. The first upgraded pavilion appeared last year on Sadovaya-Samotechnaya Street.
