Simpleway provides a visual messaging system for the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The Simpleway solution aids in passenger communication through the delivery of both scheduled and ad hoc text messages to a range of Daktronic LEDs located throughout the terminal.
The solution provides operators with an intuitive user interface to both schedule and play visual messages related to terminal information, including delays, cancellations, status changes or departure time changes. The system also provides an administrative user with the ability to create and manage bus schedules. The operator can create a master schedule for weekdays, weekends and holidays for example. Based on the master schedule assigned for each day the system creates the daily operational schedule.
To make travel as easy as possible, passengers are given up-to-the-second information, thereby allowing them to plan their bus travel accordingly.
