Serving passengers and the city
The key goals of the Tampere tramway system is to make everyday life and transportation easier for users while supporting the growth and development of the area and increasing the appeal of the city. Teleste’s passenger information system is well-equipped to advance these targets by offering a state-of-the-art plat-form for the delivery and management of travel information.
Information dislays at stops and shelters
During the construction of the tramway, Teleste delivered and installed 90 double-sided TFT LCD displays at the tramway stops and shelters. We also take care of maintaining and upgrading the hardware throughout the seven-year agreement period.
Passenger information management system
The tramway system includes Teleste’s passenger information management software, which controls the delivery of information on displays. It also provides an interface to the City of Tampere’s real-time transit data feed. In addition to real-time travel information across tramway’s stops and shelters, also city-related content can be shared.

The business model helps increase agility in obsolescence management, and provides easier control of the entire system infrastructure, including both hardware and software.
