RTPI Displays for FARA in the City Of Trondheim

In the summer of 2019 Surtronic designed and supplied well over 300 Real-Time Passenger Information (RTPI) displays for FARA, Norway’s leading technology company in public transport solutions. The displays were installed in the City of Trondheim as part of a larger project for AtB, the Public Transport Authority in one of Norway’s largest provinces Trøndelag County. By signing this unique contract, FARA is one of the first in Norway to deliver a Real-Time Passenger Information system according to the new European industry standard ITxPT (Technology for Public Transport).


FARA requested the design and supply of over 300 high-quality, durable, lean and reliable RTPI displays operational in all weather conditions, especially the cold Nordic climate. The displays will be installed in new bus shelters throughout the City of Trondheim (200.000 inhabitants).
