Project Description

Public Information Displays (PIDs) at the terminal stations in downtown Chicago have exceeded their useful life and are due for replacement. Crucial information is such as arrival times, the track number of arrivals and departures, equipment failures, and delays are visually communicated to Metra riders via the PIDs system. Project activities may include, but are not limited to, installing equipment and components, purchasing new hardware for emergency repairs, and the installation of a replacement system. The new PIDs system will be designed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and is essential to accommodate passengers with hearing impairments. This is a multi-year, phase-funded project
