Journeo wins order to upgrade Edinburgh real-time info

Journeo plc has received a £2.1m order from the City of Edinburgh to upgrade its real-time outdoor passenger display systems estate.

The UK-based firm, listed on the London Stock Exchange, is a leading provider of information systems and technical services to transport operators and local authorities.

The purchase order includes the supply and support of over 400 optically bonded new displays as part of the second phase of a 5 year £4.8 million services and support contract originally announced by the Company in December 2019 and follows completion of the initial £0.8 million purchase order for the supply of integrated real-time passenger systems and software for Edinburgh bus station, announced on 27 January 2020.

The new displays will be installed at bus stops and bus shelters throughout the City of Edinburgh delivering multiple benefits, including higher contrast and greater readability in all light-levels with lower energy consumption, whilst providing the travelling public with more feature-rich information such as departure-specific disruption messaging.

The Company expects to deliver £1.2 million of the project this financial year ending 31 December 2022, paving the way for the City of Edinburgh Council to investigate potential new sites to further expand their real-time estate.

Russ Singleton, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The pandemic began to take hold early in 2020 shortly after we commenced the first phase of the systems, software and services contract with the City of Edinburgh.

“Covid-19 safety legislation and associated travel restrictions extended the original programme delivery, however our engineers and developers worked closely with the Edinburgh team throughout the pandemic and in November 2021, we successfully completed the handover of the bus station.

“We are delighted to progress on to the second and much larger £2.1 million phase announced today where our management software will deliver travel information and public messaging to over 400 of our latest optically bonded outdoor displays, further enhancing the capabilities and performance of Edinburgh’s world-class passenger information systems network”.
