Real-time information makes travel easier
The new information system significantly improves passenger information. Up-to-date information is available for all public transport vehicles in the HSL area.
You get real-time information about the movement of vehicles before and during your journeys from displays at stops as well as from the new Journey Planner. In addition to vehicle movement information, the new system takes into account weather conditions and changes to these conditions.
Displays at stops, stations and terminals display a vehicle’s real-time departure time from the stop in question.
Passengers are going to get information about the next stop from audio announcements and displays to be installed on buses. Later the displays can be used for presenting information about diversion routes and passenger bulletins.
WIDER USE OF REAL TIME FORECAST INFORMATION
- Forecasts to be displayed at stops and online available for all HSL transport services across the region
- The forecasts take account of weather conditions and forecasts
IMPROVED ONBOARD PASSENGER INFORMATION
- Audio announcements (next stop + later possible disruption alerts) on buses and trams
- Displays showing the name of the next stop installed on all buses
Audio announcements make travel easier
The name of the next stop is announced in Finnish and Swedish on all buses and trams in the HSL area. In addition, displays showing the name of the next stop are installed on all buses. At a later stage, audio announcements will be used also to inform passengers of diversion routes and other disruptions. There are in total 4,500 stops with different names in the HSL area.
The audio announcements will be introduced simultaneously on all vehicles, once all devices have been installed approximately in late autumn 2017.
The voice for HSL’s audio announcement was selected in spring 2015. Customers and experts participated in the selection.
