Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Activates Intelligent Transportation Kiosks



December 26, 2005 By

Earlier this month the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) announced the availability of four state-of-the-art informational kiosks at South Station.

The kiosks equipped with two terminals will provide customers with real-time travel information. By simply touching a screen, customers can access a wide variety of information such as MBTA schedules, Logan Airport flight information, restaurants, hotel accommodations and much more. All information from these kiosks can be downloaded to a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) and printed at no cost to the customer.

The four kiosks are conveniently located in the Commuter Rail, Red Line, and Silver Line lobbies and meet all Americans with Disabilities Act requirements including Braille and text to speech capabilities.
