Mobility Measure

Real-time mobility and tourism information services

Guaguas Municipales has extended the real-time information system at 20 bus stops with screens powered by solar energy.

These screens include new and innovative functionalities, such as devices that allow customers to read the current balance of their contactless smart cards, and a voice-over system that alerts people with visual impairments to updated arrival times.

Implementing sustainable mobility

After the installation and monitoring phase, the panels are continuously tracked to ensure their correct operation and to repair them in case of incidents, e.g. vandalism or technical faults.

In collaboration with Las Palmas Municipality, Guaguas Municipales is installing the same real-time information systems every time a new bus stop is created or an existing one is improved or replaced.

Aside from the 20 systems installed as part of DESTINATIONS, over 40 further systems have been installed or upgraded.

Guaguas Municipales has also established that solar-powered real-time information panels are cheaper than those connected to the electricity grid, if the total amount of funding needed to purchase and install the equipment is taken into account.
