SITA Transit | SITA



Current challenges are placing a spotlight on issues such as travel stress, revenue generation and brand reputation. SITA Transit is a passenger information display system (PIDS) that aids the flow of passengers through a station efficiently and effectively. It is ideal for any transit authority (rail and bus) wanting to communicate health and safety regulations and other pertinent travel messages.

How it helps

Transit authorities rely on visual communications to share travel information such as arrivals, departures, status, and other relevant messages with passengers. SITA Transit facilitates passenger flows efficiently and effectively.


SITA Transit's flexible and mature software system makes it ideal for operators of single or multi-campus stations (where planes, trains, and buses converge). It is also well suited to their tenants (bus and train lines).

SITA Transit features include:

  • Template-level data transformation – Improves display flexibility and minimizes database processing
  • Data integration – Enables the integration of data from multiple carriers and other systems such as tracking, train control, geo location, and building management systems
  • Template-based display architecture – Updates modifications on all displays with a single command
  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) display engines – Ensures reliability as WPF display engines are more reliable than web browser-based engines
  • Push architecture – Reduces bandwidth consumption by limiting data transfer and omitting information requests from the Digital Device Controllers (DDC)
  • Emergency communication system override – Provides public alerts and overrides displays with lifesaving instructions to passengers. The proprietary message broker integrates with fire alarm systems.


  • Reduce implementation costs – we are device agnostic, ensuring you always get the best deal
  • Communicate simultaneously with passengers speaking multiple languages
  • Increase ancillary revenue through display of advertisements and promotions
  • Integrate with passenger address system for an integrated visual and voice communication solution
  • Bring new display technology to improve your image and brand perception
  • Extend the life of display investment by leveraging our engineering expertise in serial device communication
  • Support multi-modal integration (where planes, trains and buses converge) requirements by leveraging our expertise across transit and airport industries
