As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, ZET recently presented a few novelties with which it plans to modernise passenger transport offered in the Croatian capital city on the whole. In the trams, they will install screens that will actually show the tram’s route, how long it takes to get to the next station, as well as which other lines passengers can be transferred to.
As part of the project to modernise and upgrade the city’s traffic control and management system, ZET is testing out some modern new screens that will make it easier for passengers to navigate the traffic system.
“For example, the screens will contain a graphic representation of the stops along a particular route, as well as a display of the time it takes the vehicle to reach the next stop or the final destination. In addition, when the tram is arriving at the next stop, information about other lines that use that stop, both tram and bus lines, will be displayed. So, passengers will have information about the possibility of further transfers should they need them,” ZET spokesman Domagoj Zeba told HRT.
The screens will also provide information on the traffic situation, for example when traffic is diverted due to an accident. Such an idea is very welcome to passengers.
“It’s great, especially for people who aren’t from Zagreb and come here for whatever reason and use the trams and buses, so that they can get the information they need,” said ZET user Ilonka.
An information screen is currently being tested in one of ZET’s trams and is being tested out along different routes every day, and by the end of the year, the plan is to equip about fifty trams with these new screens.
