In addition to the installation of hundreds of Connectpoint’s solar-powered e-Paper Digital Bus Stop® displays across the city’s 85 bus lines, TriMet in Portland has installed Connectpoint’s UL listed LED displays at every Max Light Rail and Division Street BRT station. The LED displays are available in two sizes and three configurations: single sided, double sided, double sided with a downlight. TriMet uses the LEDs to provide next train and bus arrival and connection information as well as real-time service alerts.
TriMet’s MAX Light Rail network extends across 60 miles, and is the fourth-busiest light rail system in the U.S. by annual ridership, providing almost 39 million trips in 2018, according to a transit ridership report from the American Public Transportation Association. Connectpoint’s LED signage offer full-color solutions, high brightness, daylight readability as well as high image-quality resolution.
System health, power, and content across digital signage is managed by a single cloud-based content management system, Connectpoint’s CPAM (Connectpoint Asset Management), the industry’s only device agnostic, content management system, which can be accessed from any mobile device for on-the-go changes and performance visibility, and can be converted into an emergency message system.
“TriMet is recognized industry-wide for its leadership in promoting broad usage of public transit – interestingly, 82 percent of their riders have cars but instead choose TriMet to get to work, school, medical appointments, shopping, going to special events or the airport, visiting friends, etc.” commented Rick Wood, CEO, Connectpoint. “We are delighted to have been selected in a competitive bid process to contribute to TriMet’s ongoing mission to improve the experience for its customers.”
