Transit Information Displays

These displays and signs provide transit information specific to each location. Transit users can get relevant information without knowing in advance what transit services are available at that location, and they don't need a smart phone with transit apps installed.

Transit Displays

Large, flat-panel LCD screens are installed in and around the DC Metro area including Arlington County buildings, Commuter Stores, condominium and business properties, and other locations. These systems display real-time transit information specific to each location and may include:

  • Real-time Metrorail arrival times for a nearby Metro station
  • Real-time bus arrival times for one or more nearby bus stops
  • Bus schedules
  • Current bikesharing availability
  • Current carsharing availability
  • News/weather/time
  • Transit service alerts

LED Bus Information Displays

Easy-to-read, lighted signs at Rosslyn and Crystal City Metro stations tell riders which buses stop at which bus bays. Printed schedule information is displayed beneath each digital sign.
