Implementation of dynamic boarding begins at Dutch railway stations

STBY was involved in the development and testing of new dynamic boarding technology that is creating a major service improvement to the Dutch railway system. Implementation has now begun in three major stations: Schiphol airport, Amsterdam Zuid, and Utrecht Central Station.  An Intelligent Platform Bar, a led screen along the full length of the platform, tells train travellers in real time the location of the doors, 1st and 2nd class cars, and bicycle and wheelchair access in the train they are waiting for. This enables train travellers to pick the right place on the platform to board an incoming train, so they can board safely and quickly. Have a look at the Intelligent Platform Bar in action.
