A spokesman said: “The new RTPI displays will work using mobile phone technology which will allow greater reliability and instant messaging to update passengers of service disruptions and cancellations. “The new displays will have scheduled information only until the new Poole and Bournemouth RTPI system goes live at the end of May.”
