TfL has been working with its suppliers to develop a means of displaying Digital Sign technology in a robust, secure and weather-proofed facility that is fit for purpose in exposed environments such as bus stations and interchanges. Three trial locations have been selected for testing purposes and TfL plans to have test signs in situ during April 2014 to assess the suitability of the technology for these locations. Based on the outcome, a business decision will be made on how to proceed with a potential rollout across bus stations, including Canada Water.
