London borough gets smart

10 December 2021

The London Borough of Croydon will introduce a network of smart bus shelters early next year to provide free public Wi-Fi, traffic sensors and air quality monitoring. US firm VALO Smart City will install, operate and maintain the smart bus shelters located in 185 locations across the district. VALO signed a 10-year deal with Croydon Council following a tender process in what is understood to be a multi-million-pound deal”. The smart bus shelters will also offer LED edge lighting, voice announcements and accessibility improvements for people with disabilities, along with noise and traffic sensors.
