MISC | LED displays and information boards

What kind of information does the LED displays in the train cars in your place display?

In Singapore:
North-south and East-west lines

-Date and time [default display]
-this train will end at (end station name) [flashes]
-(alphanumeric code) station name... (alphanumeric code) station name... [scrolls across once]
-Thank you for travelling with SMRT [flashes]
-*Doors Closing* [flashes]

North-east line
-Next station, (alphanumeric code) station name [scrolls across repeatedly]
- (aplhanumeric code) station name [flashes]
-Please stand clear of doors [scrolls across once]

Bukit Panjang LRT
-Next station, (alphanumeric code) station name [scrolls upwards repeatedly while at a station]
-Door closing [flashes]
-Approaching (alphanumeric code) station name [scrolls upwards repeatedly]
-This train is service (A/B)

Sengkang and Punggol LRT
-Please stand clear of doors [scrolls across once]
-Next station, (alphanumeric code) station name [scrolls across repeatedly]
-Welcome to SBS Transit [scrolls across a few times]
-(alphanumeric code) station name [flashes]

Depends on the line and sometimes rolling stock version in Tokyo. On the Yamanote and a few other lines there's an LCD TV that shows a map of the line, travel time to downstream stations, transfers at next station, which side doors open, layout of next station (stairs, escalators, elevator location), final destination, and train type (express local). If there's a break in the schedule or a cancelled service on another line, it'll have a little text message too. All in Japanese and English.

Some trains just have an LED that says next station, final destination, train type, and transfers at next station. Some trains have nothing. Gradually more trains are getting LEDs, and some LCD TVs.

Sounds like what they have here.

Transfer stations here have the following displays:
EW & NS lines;
Next Stop, EW16 Outram Park Interchange. Passengers travelling towards HarbourFront or Pungool, please alight at the next stop...

NE line;
Next Station, NE3 Outram Park. Passengers may alight and change to the East-West line.

There is an absence of indicating which side the doors open. But this is largely due to the similarity of the station layouts, a vast majority of which are island platforms.

Toronto has full LCD screens that tell weather and sports and Subway info in some trains.

In Singapore, the newer trains (you can distinguish them by the black colour on the NE line and the blak trains on the older lines) have LCD screens. These show adverts too. On the NE line, they have a ticker tape that shows end destination, next station and things like that.

Yeah right. Many cities around the world have onboard LCD screens.

The Toronto scheme is only partially complete. In fact, TTC subway trains don't automatically announce the next stop yet while TV screens at stations don't show train arrival information.

Shhhhh, don't bring it to anyones attention.

Yea it's partial, bu TTC wants revamp the design because not enough transit information is on it. Also we have 40 inch screens (as I've been tol in articles) in our stations.

Currently, in SIngapore all newer trains have teh LED displays. They were put in since 1999's Bukit Panjang LRT's opening, along with the LCD screens. The metro trains on the main, older network still lack these fatures though.

At the station concourse, there are LED displays indicating train arrival times in minutes and on the platform itself, there are plasma displays that show advertisements and train arrival times.

The LCD displays in the trains on the older lines are horrible. They just show advertisements, no information what so ever.

The TTC subway trains don't announce the next stops, but the conductors do - they have to. And why the hell would the LCDs in the TTC stations announce the next train - it's a friggin' subway, the trains come at regular intervals. There are even signs posted. Unless you're at davisville station, you don't need a sign to tell you at which side of the platform the next train will arrive. God damn Toronto basher.

Actually, I'd prefer to know how much longer I have to wait for the train's arrival. Its a psychological thing I guess. And many systems world-wide do show the train arrival times. Paris, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Singapore, Malaysia... Somehow you feel "safer" knowing the train is a few minutes away, even if it is as much as 7 minutes.

Besides that, I'm sure the LCD/LED can display service disruptions if necessary. When people jump off the platform here, it causes delays and when these occur, the plasma and LED screens at the stations display: "NO TRAIN SERVICE BETWEEN TOA PAYOH AND ANG MO KIO" or something to that extent.

Oh, I believe they have disruption notices on the old LEDs *shudder*. And I'm positive the LCDs are quite capable of informing riders about disruptions. Although I've never experienced one.

There are LED displays on londons newer tube trains such as the ones used on the jubilee line or on the picadilly line aswell for that matter. There arent any such displays i believe on older trains such as those used on the circle line for example.

The info these LED screens show is the next station ... aswell as what connections can be made at the station and if it is possible to make connection to national rail services.

"Regular" degenerates after peak times, when frequencies decrease. Delays will show immediately and passengers will have more information readily available to them. Train time displays are common in many systems around the world. It's part of customer service, and it has become a reality in today's modern public transit facilities. Technology has advanced, except in Toronto.

Yes, if it's five minutes - you really need a display to tell you if the train is coming. You're still a T.O. basher. That's all I was getting at. By the way, are you from or residing in vancouver - or any other western canadian city?
