Daktronics Awarded $1.2 Million Contract From Bay Area Rapid Transit

BROOKINGS, S.D., Feb. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq:DAKT) has been chosen to provide $1.2 million worth of high resolution, full-color 6mm pitch LED displays for San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) in California. The fifth-largest transit station in America, BART serves eight million travelers a year, providing transportation between the East and West Bay.

BART's initial purchase of high resolution, full-color displays will be installed as part of the passenger information system along the new Warm Springs, San Jose Berryessa and East Contra Costa (eBART) extensions. The Warm Springs extension is set to open to the public in December of 2015.

Daktronics first delivered LED displays to BART nearly 15 years ago. Over the last year, Daktronics and BART support worked together to develop the 6mm pitch LED product specifically for the mass transit market. Dale Storhaug, Daktronics Mass Transit Manager, explained that the signs will be used for line color designation, color text, graphics and symbols display, wayfinding purposes and train status information. Storhaug commented, "We're excited to deliver the latest in transit signage that can replace the current signs which stood the test of time. Having a customer relationship built on that level of loyalty and proven dependability is invaluable."
