Chris Johns, Founder Quote:
‘With so many transit options available it’s incredibly difficult for people to know everything that’s available at a very local level; Where are the bus stops? When is the next bus, train, tram or boat? Are there any travel alerts? How many bikes are available, are there any shared rides leaving soon? How many ride-hailing vehicles are available locally or is it easier to just walk? All too often, simply because people aren’t aware a transit option exists, they revert to their car.
Passageway real-time digital wayfinding and transport signs help people, be they customers, students, staff, patients, visitors or clients, navigate to their next destination smoothly, and can help rapidly disperse the crowds that stadiums, shopping centres and major event destinations experience by sharing all the transit options, whilst simultaneously helping to reduce pollution and congestion.
As the physical and digital worlds converge, peoples’ interaction with our towns and cities is fundamentally changing. We believe real-time, digital street-level navigation will soon be commonplace across our urban landscape. We, like our partners, share a vision of the urban future as smart, sustainable environments, with clean air, engaged citizens and with transit infrastructures that are accessible to everyone.’
