On-bus screens rolled out in Queenstown

Posted 12 Aug 2015, by Chris Mein

Over the afternoon of the 12th and morning of the 13th TrackABus installed on-bus information screens on the remaining 6 low floor buses of the Connectabus urban fleet.

The installation process went smoothly although two of the six vehicles needed minor modifications to the mounting system, a process that was done on site with the help of the Connectabus maintenance team.

The initial response to the screens was overwhelmingly positive. The Connectabus management were excited at the improved service they could offer to their customers, particularly the inclusion of 'hotels at this stop' type information. Drivers commented that they would not need to field as many 'is this my stop?' questions while passengers were already using the new service.
