Transportation boss wants screens with commuter info in bus shelters

Arguing that Chicago’s 2,200 lighted bus shelters are “under-utilized,” newly-appointed Transportation Commissioner Gabe Klein wants to put them to work — by installing video screens that provide an array of commuter information. The TV-like screens that Klein hopes to install would include everything from Bus Tracker information now available on the internet and cell phones to the current inventory for car- and bike-sharing and how long it would take to walk to popular destinations.
