Yarra Trams, in partnership with Public Transport Victoria, is commencing a trial of enhanced passenger information screens on a C1-Class tram today.
The trial tram (number 3028) has a Vehicle Passenger Information System (VPIS) comprising four dual LCD screens, positioned for maximum visibility within the tram, and automated audio installed.
The new system delivers more information to passengers and improves the ease of travel for passengers with hearing or vision impairments.
The LCD trial screens will initially provide destination, next three stops, Free Tram Zone and accessible stop information. Integration of planned disruption information will be tested during the trial.
VPIS is already installed on a total 290 E, D, B2 and A-Class trams across Melbourne's fleet.
Subject to the success of the trial, LCD screens will be installed on all 36 C1-Class trams. Roll-out is planned to commence in late-2017 and expected to be complete by early-2018.
Tram passengers are encouraged to provide feedback about the VPIS experience on tram 3028 during the trial.
