TfL has chosen a digital Content Management System (CMS) from IVU Traffic Technologies for a pilot installation, transforming the passenger information at Manor Park station.
The station, on the TfL Rail line Liverpool Street-Shenfield, is the site of a pilot installation of a multi-modal passenger information system. Located in the ticket hall area of the station, two large format displays enable passengers to rapidly gain information on the status of TfL Rail trains, London Underground services, and bus departure information for the two bus stops adjacent to the Manor Park rail station.
The IVU CMS at Manor Park includes additional information such as the official @TfL Twitter feed, local weather, and BBC News. Disruption information is immediately notified to passengers using IVU’s CMS ability to automatically supersede Twitter and News feeds with disruption information.
TfL will use the pilot to carry out passenger surveys and will engage with the public to seek feedback, comments, and suggestions for possible future enhancements to their design.
