City of Atlanta seeking Citizens Informational Digital Kiosks
The City of Atlanta is seeking a turn-key provider (install, operate, maintain) of a digital kiosk citizen information system to improve the pedestrian experience of residents and visitors in the public right-of-way, principally located on sidewalks.
The interactive kiosks will provide wayfinding and routing information to governmental, civic and cultural institutions throughout the city; businesses, including restaurants and retail shops; and comprehensive event listings, with an emphasis on localized content. The kiosks will provide real-time transit schedules and updates, as well as the availability and location of bike share and car sharing to facilitate efficient mobility throughout the City. Additionally, the kiosks will serve as a critical dissemination point of city messages during emergencies, communicate the Atlanta brand as a leader in technology and urbanism, and provide a surveying tool to solicit feedback from residents and visitors.
