Bus passengers in Burton are set to benefit from a new travel information system.
The Enhanced Passenger Information (EPI) system is being rolled out at bus stops on the number three route between Winshill and Stretton next week and will display timetables and other information such as details of road closures.
In total 21 stops will be equipped with new electronic display.
“It is exciting to see the introduction of the Enhanced Passenger Information system in Burton,” said County Councillor Mike Maryon. “We want to help people get to where they want to be and we want to make their journeys as safe, comfortable and convenient as possible.
“Our transport network is also fundamental to boosting our county’s economic prosperity – our number one priority – by connecting people with jobs, services and training opportunities and keeping businesses on the move.”
The £275,000 EPI system forms part of a £3.3million package of transport improvements in the Burton area
Cllr Maryon added: “Improvements to Burton’s transport system, of which the Enhanced Passenger Information system forms a vital part, are key to the successful delivery of new homes, shops and jobs in the town as part of its growth agenda.
“We will be assessing the economic and social impact of the new EPI system with a view to rolling this out in other areas across the county in the future.”
The new displays will start working on October 5.
