Hudson Reporter 3/3/2018:(Jersey City) Kiosks will provide information and revenue

“A plan to install information kiosks throughout the city has been delayed by state regulations and will also limit these to commercial areas.

Brian Platt, director of the city’s Office of Innovation, said a plan to install these around the city ran into a snag when the state Department of Transportation stepped in.

“We thought the state only controlled state roads,” he said. “But apparently they control what gets installed on all roads.”

The city has signed an agreement with Smart City Media to develop and install public information kiosks in Jersey City.

The company would install and maintain these, and the city will get a percentage of profit from the advertisements displayed on the kiosks.

The city, however, has to apply to the state for a permit for each of the kiosks, and the state apparently is only willing to permit the city to install them in commercial districts.

“Fortunately that’s where we intended to put them anyway,” Platt said.

Each kiosk will provide touch screen limited internet access to provide public information about the area, directions to points of interest and other such information.

Each will also provide free Wi-Fi connections within 200 feet of them, Platt said.”


Great. Our sidewalks aren't narrow enough already, now we'll throw a bunch of "kiosks" onto them.

Whether we pay for it or not it will be destroyed in a few years. I will provide a link when that happens.

Those the same kiosks where NYC street people pull up chairs and sofas to camp out? Can only imagine what will be going on outside Newark Penn Station.

Newark will be the fourth city in the world -- and the first in New Jersey -- to provide high-speed wifi "Link" kiosks that will allow pedestrians to charge their phones, make a call or download music and movies, free of charge.

The multi-million dollar investment in the city by Intersection, a New York-based technology company, comes at an exiting time for Newark, which was recently named a finalist for Amazon's second headquarters.

"Newark is here, we are on the map," Aisha Glover, president of the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC) said during a Wednesday press conference at NJIT. "We are claiming our space. We certainly feel like this is our moment."
