Bus shelters getting charging points

TELECOMMUNICATIONS PROVIDER Digicel is paving the way for continued convenience for all Barbadians, by bringing charging points to bus shelters across the island.

The points are part of an initiative first introduced by Adopt A Stop bench and bus shelter advertising, and then adopted by Digicel, which will allow those waiting on buses use their phone’s native charging cable and plug into the USB ports installed in the shelters as early as this month.

Speaking in an interview with the SUNDAY SUN, director of marketing at Digicel, Carolyn Shepherd, said the initiative came about after they considered the needs of those who used public transport.

“We realised that people are using both mobile data and Wi-Fi and what we find is that because people are using their phones all the time, they die while you’re on the road.” (JJS)
