The smart screens will save the waiting time of passengers and enable them to revise their journey plans in the event of any emergency changes.

More than 150 solar-powered smart screens will be installed at bus stops across Dubai, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.

“We had started the installation of 151 smart screens at public bus stops, and nine of them will be fully installed by the end of this year,” said Khaled Al Awadi, director of transportation systems, public transport agency, RTA.

“The screens will offer public bus riders real-time updates of bus timings. As such, they will save the waiting time of passengers and enable them to revise their journey plans in the event of any emergency changes or rescheduling of the services,” he added.

“This new generation of screens is powered by solar energy, said Al Awadi. “The use of environmentally-friendly solutions has become a workstyle of the RTA. The project constitutes part of Dubai’s Smart City initiative and contributes to ease the use of public transport means. The screens display the arrival time of the upcoming bus and the following one as well at each stop/station. Touch screens will also be installed to serve as journey planners,” he explained.

“Mega screens will be put up at the main waiting areas of bus stations to display information assisting the use of public transport means. During Expo 2020, these screens will display key information about the expo along with updates of events to help riders plan for attending those of interest to them,” concluded Al Awadi.
