Notes

These signs are solar powered and capable of running for 20 days of inclement weather. Housed in a heavy-duty enclosure that is both vandal and weather resistant, the signs are all pager controlled. These signs can display information about estimated arrival times for multiple routes and repeated text banners. Cost estimate reflects the use of 'off the shelf' components.
