KIOSKS OFFER TRANSIT INFORMATION
BROOMFIELD, Colo. – Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) has contracted with Kiosk Information Systems (KIS) to design, manufacture and install kiosks which provide consumers with up-to-the-minute transit information. Forty “RTD Info” kiosks are located throughout the metro Denver area at libraries, hospitals, and other public places offering quick access to routes, schedules, fares, and other RTD information. Each kiosk has printing capabilities so that riders can walk away with the information obtained, and a phone on the side of the kiosk allows users to contact RTD directly with questions. The project scope is to install 400 kiosks over the next 5 years throughout the six-county RTD service area.
“Public transportation kiosks can be placed in a variety of environments that offer quick access to information while promoting the use of public transit,” noted Rick Malone, KIS President. Ben Martinez, RTD Project Manager in charge of the Kiosk Program, added, “RTD is committed to providing the public with quality service. The Kiosk Project is new technology designed to provide our riders with real-time bus tracking, trip planning, special program information, fare prices and system maps that show bus/light rail routes and locations of Park-n-Rides.”
