Lithuania city first in Europe to launch touch-map

Lithuania: Vilnius in Lithuania became the first European city to unveil touch sensitive digital maps in bus shelters. These interactive maps offer information about bus and trolley-bus routes and schedules in five languages: Lithuanian, English, Russian, Polish and German.

“The screens were unveiled in France in May, however, have not yet been launched. Vilnius has become the first European city to have this innovative system available for local passengers and guests,” stated Vilnius Mayor Arturas Zuokas.

The modern 42-inch system is resistant to low temperatures ensuring long-term functionality even in extremely cold winter. The maps allow public transportation riders to search for the most optimal route with the shortest travel time.
