New York Transit System Is Upgrading
Government agencies and departments can benefit from distributing information digitally. By introducing a digital signage network, government buildings can share disaster and emergency information, improve communication, provide wayfinding and generate revenue through advertisements.
One recent example of how governments are changing the digital game came from an announcement in July, 2016: Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York State announced they are renewing the New York City Transit’s station refurbishment campaign.
1,025 transit cars will be getting upgrades that could include wi-fi, digital information screens, USB charging sockets and colored light indicators to warn of door closure. Digital information screens can provide quick and convenient information for passengers! ‘New York deserves a world-class transportation network, worthy of its role as the heartbeat of the 21st century economy’, Cuomo said.
How can your department or business utilize these forward-thinking trends?
