The first City Digital Bus Stop was opened by Lord Mayor Martin Haese and Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan in Grote Street(outside Hilton Hotel) today.

It's the same data shown on real time on your phone, tablet, etc. Looks like the only extra feature from what you can see online is 1 or 2 via... roads/places for each route.

The new stop design (excluding the screen showing real time display) looks ok - the current theme has been in place quite a long time!
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.

This info is also at TTP and Paradise Interchanges,as well as Flinders Medical Centre(inside doorway). I wonder how long before they provide the same "real-time" info at Marion Interchange,considering no of services that depart from there?

I'd probably like to see some electronic ("real time") information provided at Adelaide Airport; would certainly assist passengers determining which bus(es) to catch.

Not having seen it myself; does the new bus stop have audio information?

Klemzig Interchange and Dumas St Park n' Ride also have the Real Time Information Signs. I find it odd they have chosen a new design. (The digital part, not the physical casing, I rather like the case.)

I too would like RTI (Real Time Information) at Adelaide Airport. The number of times I am asked by people how to use the buses and how to buy a ticket from the machine, then to have them also ask when the next bus is, is rather alarming. Better information should be provided. I can't remember if there is even a timetable provided.

I should hope there is audio. The new RTI board in Adelaide Railway Station has it, a button for each main line, it includes branch line in it. With each interchange that has RTI including audio for the vision impaired, it is more likely to have it than not.
Regards,
Mr Nicoster.

I have now physically seen the new stop; it does not include audio information; purely visual. The next departure information goes quite some time into the future; when I visited; departures well over two hours into the future were being shown; thereby filling the screen.

I would have thought one of the main King William Street or Grenfell or Currie Streets would have been a better location to install one of these, where more people use the stop.

Here are some pictures of the stop taken today. Odd that there isn't a picture at AdelaideMetro.com.au, but here you go here are some...

The vertical bars are an artifact of the camera, humans don't see them! Nice to see that low floor buses are marked.
