27 Aug CCCTA Awards Solar Sign Contract to Waysine LLC
Concord, CA, August 27, 2016 –(PR.com)– WaySine LLC, a leading manufacturer of solar powered real time information signs for bus stops and shelters, is please to announce the award and installation of solar powered LCD signs throughout CCCTA’s transit service. CCCTA selected Way Sine for it’s low power, low cost, and ease of use properties.
After extensive review and research into real time information signage CCCTA selected the Way Sine signs as a unique solution to solar powered real time information signage. With no other signs being able to provide the same aesthetic and low power features, CCCTA was able to receive bus stop access grant funding for this project.
“We really appreciate how Waysine worked with us to create a long term lease that addressed our concerns about vandalism and lack of staff to provide ongoing maintenance. Waysine handles all aspects of the program from configuration and installation to ongoing diagnosis, maintenance, and repair. Its been a risk free way to put new technology at bus stops in Contra Costa – and the passengers love it,” Anne Muzzini, CCCTA – Director of Planning & Marketing
A pilot project of 20 signs were installed in June 2016 with an SMS based survey conducted to see the impact, and desire for additional signs. As a result, 81% felt that the signs were great and wanted to see more of them, with 94% stating that the signs would improve their experience while waiting for the bus. Further surveys will be done with other agencies to strategically target the best locations for signs from rider feedback.
“Working with CCCTA has expanded our ability to connect with more riders in the California area,” states Karl Chang, CEO/President of Way Sine. “This contract highlights the ability and benefit of extending real time information signage to all bus stops and shelters.”
