Town centre digital screen displays real time bus and train information

Bus and train users in Bexleyheath are the first in London to benefit from a new live public transport information system.

A digital display screen has been installed in the pedestrianised area near the Clock Tower in Bexleyheath.

The screen displays live real time running information on train services from Bexleyheath, Barnehurst and Bexley stations and will automatically update when departure boards at these stations change. It also features live data on buses which serve the town centre.

It is the first ‘multi-modal information system’ to be used in a town centre by a local authority in London.

The installation of the screen is part of the second phase of the award-winning Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation scheme.

The scheme was highly praised with the judges of the Urban Transport Design Award 2015 saying ‘practitioners should visit Bexleyheath, observe and see what they can learn’.

Cabinet member for traffic and transport Cllr Alex Sawyer said: “The London Borough of Bexley is once again leading the way when it comes to transforming Bexleyheath town centre and the local environment. Providing better transport information through the use of cutting edge technology such as this will help boost the local economy.”

  • A brilliant idea, spoilt by the lack of an anti-reflective coating on the glass. It's difficult enough to read the information on a rainy day as pictured, but when the Sun is out, it's absolutely useless!
