The final stops of the T3 tram line in Saint-Etienne will in future be adorned with light hourglasses.
The hourglasses have been created by the Cobalt Lumière design agency and are based on our Lif light columns, which can be found elsewhere in the town.
The light hourglasses are located next to the tram stops. These constitute intelligent electrical signage that uses light signals to indicate to passengers the waiting time until the next tram arrives.
While the horizontal green lines indicate the time left until the next tram in one direction, the horizontal blue lines indicate the same for the other direction. The less lines that are shown, the nearer the tram is.
As a result, passengers can tell whether to continue approaching the stop as they are already doing or if they have to hurry to catch the next tram.
