ENGINEERS at the Department of Transport Control and Communications division in Bristol have developed a talking bus stop.
Known as Elsie (electronic speech information equipment), the stop has an electronic device that will announce the time of day, the bus routes served by the particular stop and the expected time of arrival of the next bus on each route served by the stop.
A field trial of the equipment is to be carried out in conjunction with the Bristol Omnibus Company early next year.
