Omnibus’ bus stop display design software, OmniSTOPdesign, has been heavily revised to make it easier to use.

Additional features have also been added, including the ability to power information screens with live departure data. This means that live video displays, such as at bus stations, can also receive continuously updated real time departure information to display alongside video adverts within the OmniSTOPdesign template.

The software has been designed to give operators and local authorities freedom to create bespoke displays themselves. Users have control over styles, fonts, graphics, colours and paper size, giving them the opportunity to fully incorporate any relevant branding and graphics.

Displays can be set in advance, so that new data can be imported whenever it is needed. The design can be specified right down to individual bus stop level so every display can be tailored.

Omnibus customers using OmniSTOPdesign have been giving their feedback and their suggestions for software enhancements have contributed to the changes in the new release from Omnibus developers.

Peter Crichton, Managing Director, Omnibus, commented: “Informing passengers of changes to services in a clear and concise way is vitally important right now. The increased need for publicity, along with the ever-changing situation, means that having the ability to make those changes inhouse, quickly and easily, is a huge benefit.”
