Up to 50 kiosks offering information about Jersey City will be installed throughout the city’s neighborhoods.
City Hall issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for these types of devices at the end of 2017. The RFP stated in part that “kiosk designs shall be of a modern aesthetic and shall reflect Jersey City’s streetscapes and architecture,” adding that at least one must be installed at or near all of Jersey City’s PATH stations, the Martin Luther King Drive and West Side Avenue Hudson-Bergen Light Rail stops, and at least two Jersey City Housing Authority complexes. The RFP also required applicants to include at least one kiosk per ward in their proposal.
Smart City Media was awarded the contract earlier this year. The company has also installed CityPost kiosks in cities like Little Rock, Kansas City, and Louisville.
