Bus stop announcements are introduced on bus services operated from the Köysikuja depot in Rajatorppa, Vantaa this week. The routes operated from the depot include bus routes serving Northern Espoo and Western Vantaa as well as buses running from Elielinaukio via Vihdintie to these areas. Stop announcements tell the name of the next stop in Finnish and Swedish a moment before the bus arrives at the stop. This week, stop announcements are introduced on about 60 buses.
The announcements will be rolled out in phases across the HSL area over the spring, one operator at a time. Information on route-specific commissioning will be provided on the HSL.fi website as well as on bus stop displays on the respective routes. By introducing the announcements in stages, it is possible to adjust equipment based on feedback received from passengers and drivers if necessary. After commissioning, all HSL public transport services, including the metro, trams, commuter trains and buses, will have a public announcement system in place as a part of HSL's passenger information system.
