Digital Transit Information Signs

These signs provide information that applies specifically to each sign's 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.

Digital signs installed in Arlington display ART, Metrobus, and local bus schedule and real-time information for nearby bus stops.

Types of Digital Signs

Redmon Digital Signage System (RDSS)

Large, flat-panel LCD screens installed in and around the DC Metro area including Arlington County buildings, federal buildings, Commuter Stores, transit centers, Tysons Corner Center Mall, and other locations, both indoors and outdoors. These systems display transit information specific to each location, and may include:

  • real-time Metrorail train arrival information for a nearby Metro station
  • real-time bus arrival information for one or more nearby bus stops
  • bus schedule information,
  • current bike sharing availability information,
  • current car sharing availability information,
  • news/weather/time information,
  • transit service alerts
