Brooklyn Bus Line Gets A Real-Time Digital Wayfinding Portal
Real-time digital display highlights bus, subway, and ferry routes within a five minute walk of the location.
As part of New York City’s WalkNYC Program, the Select Bus Service has been revamped in hopes to improve quality, comfort and journey times for passengers. In collaboration with DOT and MTA, PentaCity Group (led by City ID) is now integrating a wayfinding system to support transfers between the different transportation modes.
Several new features have been added to certain city bus route signs. They include real-time bus locations, detailed route maps, and a transfer map that is tailored to your location. The signs are designed to provide information for those leaving the bus, as well as information for those choosing to board or transfer to another service.
