Solar powered bus timetable displays

Cambridgeshire County Council's Integrated Highways Management Centre team, in collaboration with Real Time Passenger Information (RPTI) contractor VIX Technology, have installed the first solar powered e-ink technology displays in the county, which will show the real time timetable for bus arrivals.

Replacing mains powered LED standard displays with energy efficient e-ink technology (like a Kindle screen) is an environmentally green and future-proof solution which is flexible in meeting changing business and passenger needs. The solar powered units are capable of displaying weather information and bus arrival times.

Mains connections are not required so the units are also very flexible in terms of being able to sit in challenging locations, and the new display technology allows content to be viewed in direct sunlight. The units are also equipped with LEDs for night-time illumination.

So far (May 2019), nine displays have been installed to test the new technology:

  • Four displays at the Grafton Centre in Cambridge
  • One display on Chesterton Road in Cambridge near Hertford Street
  • One display in the village of Sutton to address power problems
  • One display on Ermine Street in Huntingdon
  • Two displays on Stukeley Road in Huntingdon

Another twelve displays will be delivered in the next three months:

  • Eight displays on U route in Cambridge
  • Two displays on Madingley Road in Cambridge
  • Two displays in Witchford
