PassageWay – Free Signs

PassageWay currently work with TfL providing real-time digital signs. They have recently launched a new service, PassageWay, that provides signs to schools and other organisations, building on what they have developed for TfL.

They would like to offer all schools in London a free sign, tailored to their precise location, showing real-time local public transport options, any alerts and a local map.

The signs are supplied as a URL and can be displayed on any sized Internet-connected screen. They display all the local public transport options offered by TFL (boat, bike, bus, tube, train etc) and help promote sustainable transport to students, staff and visitors.

Schools can request their free sign at https://www.passage-way.com/enquiry/

They have written a blog post that details the benefits to schools: https://www.passage-way.com/real-time-digital-wayfinding-and-transport-signs-for-schools-colleges-and-universities/
