THE REACT WAY FINDING SYSTEM
The REACT way finding system comprises a series of beacons each of which can be triggered by a device carried by the user, to announce a pre-recorded message.
The system deployed in Buchanan Bus Station has nine beacons. At the time of our survey we found the following:
Customers can borrow a REACT fob for a small deposit per day, or can buy one at cost price for £25. Please call the bus station on 0141 333 3762 for details.
The system assumes you've just come in through an entrance, so you need to be facing in the right direction for the information to be useful. During our survey, We found the beacon by the Travel Centre was being triggered by other devices such as short wave radios which means some caution should be exercised.
