According to the Urumqi public transportation bureau, the Urumqi electronic bus stop board project, part of the city’s livelihood improvement program, will start soon.

Wu Sheng, director of the Urumqi public transportation bureau’s science and technology education office, , said that the project consists of three parts: establishing a unified industry regulator platform, monitoring real-time bus passenger flow and setting up pilot electronic bus stop boards. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

The city’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station has already built an electronic board system where passengers can get easy access to the BRT schedule. Unlike BRT, the city’s bus stations have more routes and larger electronic screens to report the latest transport information and public service advertisement.

In addition, Urumqi city has also installed a bus intelligent monitoring system to enable real-time passenger flow monitoring.
