Install real-time electronic bus signs at Travis Park, etc.

Travis Park serves as a major transfer point for VIA and people standing scanning the streets for arriving buses (as the park behind them is mainly empty) is a fairly common sight here. The costs of 'real-time' bus tracking and reporting has dropped significantly ($50 smart phones can do it). The City should work with VIA (and sponsors?) to install real-time electronic bus arrival signs at stops at Travis Park (PRIMO stop signage is one example) as well as within the park, so riders can spend time at cafe or picnic tables inside the park instead of sitting or standing so close to trafficked streets. Likewise, more comfortable street furniture should be brought to the edges of the park (cafe tables and picnic tables) to help serve VIA stops and food trucks.
