Beacons in Metro Stations

There’s a new article today at Global Rail News on how MTR, who run the Hong Kong metro, is trialling Bluetooth beacon navigation at Admiralty Station.

“As well as helping customers navigate the station itself, one of the new features, “Fast Exit”, will tell passengers which train car and door number to board when they set off on their journey in order to be closest to the exit at their destination station.”

The pilot is part of MTR’s Rail Gen 2.0 programme.
