DART to offer digital communications platform
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has contracted Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP to develop a smart media and communications digital platform that will include the deployment of kiosks at high-traffic locations throughout the agency’s network.
Working with Landmark's operating partner, Smart City Media, DART plans to provide a digital kiosk platform that offers riders local content, real-time information and connectivity. In addition, the kiosks will feature digital advertising, public WiFi, emergency notifications and cameras for safety and security.
The platform is part of the agency’s effort to enhance mobility-as-a-service opportunities for riders, DART officials said in a press release.
"In our increasingly connected world, commuters are looking for user-centered mobility solutions," said Gary Thomas, DART's president and executive director. "We're developing the technology and tools to empower our customers to make travel decisions based on their needs."
