New digital signs put MATA trolley riders up to speed on schedules and other information along routes

They’ll display the date, time, when the next trolley is due and other important information. The signs are one component of MATA’s three-year, $10 million Intelligent Transportation Systems, an information technology project for the entire fleet, said spokeswoman Alison Burton. The project is funded with federal, state and local dollars and will include global positioning systems for buses, passenger counters, camera systems and other technology.
