5 Ways Digital Signage Transforms the Metro Experience - Vlog
Video log by Esther Chew
Metro systems have the highest performance, speed, capacity and reliability compared to other modes of transportation, making them a popular choice for many. Urban mass transit systems have exploded in recent decades as the world’s population has rapidly urbanised. In Asia, transit systems carry more than 26 billion passengers a year, with the Tokyo subway registering the highest ridership globally, with 3.46 billion trips in a year.
Today, cities are leveraging digital technologies to refresh their metro stations, improve communication and enhance the passenger experience. In particular, transport digital signage is used to deliver dynamic messaging, interactive experiences, convenience and personalisation.
In Delhi, 158 metro stations, including interchange and underground stations, are slated to be installed with over 400 “improvised” information transport digital signage to provide key information (e.g. safety, ticketing and train schedules information) with better visibility.
