2023 Hot Companies: A Look at Today’s Leading Provider of ePaper Digital Signage to the U.S. Transit Industry


Providing Information & Innovation to Transit Agencies for 20 Years

King County Metro in Seattle, TriMet in Portland, and Pittsburgh Regional Transit are just three top agencies who have deployed and continue to install Connectpoint’s multiple award-winning and industry-leading solar- or AC-powered digital bus stops. The Connectpoint Digital Bus Stop® was the first solar-powered signage available to transit agencies in the U.S., providing 24/7 information to passengers for the first time at the bus stop level—mounted on poles in a matter of minutes with no electrical infrastructure required.

Since the company’s launch in 2018, helmed by CEO Rick Wood, agencies across the U.S. have deployed thousands of these revolutionary digital signs that feature exceptionally low-energy consumption and wireless (cellular and Wi-Fi) or Ethernet connectivity—providing always-on customer arrival information, alerts, and maps across their network. Available in 13”, 23”, 32”, and 42” sizes, these displays are engineered for perfect readability during sunny days, and industry-leading LED lighting provides complete clarity at night. Connectpoint® digital signage is an eco-friendly, energy-efficient solution for today’s smart city environment (IP66 environmental rating), offering reduced light pollution, and is ADA-compliant.

Timely and accurate real-time information is delivered seamlessly to passengers across an agency’s digital signage with Connectpoint’s easy-to-use and powerful Connectpoint Asset Management system (CPAM®), designed specifically for the transportation industry. This cloud-based software is intuitive and customizable, allowing agencies to deliver alerts via the agency’s real-time feed, as well as schedule custom messages for their riders. This tool gives agencies the freedom to remotely control as many signs as they please through one integrated backend system.

Connectpoint has won multiple awards over the past two years for the Connectpoint Digital Bus Stop® including the Smart Cities “Smart 50 Award” for the project “Seattle’s King County Metro Improves Passenger Transit Experience with Connectpoint’s Smart City Signage”; the IoT Breakthrough Award for “Overall Smart City Solution Provider of the Year;” the Globee Gold Award in the “Information Technology Project or Initiative of the Year” category for the company’s work with TriMet; the Golden Bridge Gold Globee Award in the “Information Technology Hardware” category; and a Digital Signage Award in the “Technical Advances and Innovation” category for displays and other devices.

Leading transit agencies across the U.S. have already deployed the most advanced solar-powered ePaper digital signage from Connectpoint.
