ELEVATOR MODERNIZATION

PORT DESTINATION DISPATCH

Destination Dispatch: Moving you in the right direction.
We’re thrilled to announce that the installation of our state of the art Destination Dispatch PORT system as part of Scotia Plaza’s Elevator Modernization project is now complete.

PHASE 2: FULL MODERNIZATION - The second phase of the project is well underway. This involves the upgrade of all elevator machinery, controllers and the modernization of the cabins. One elevator in each bank will be serviced on a rotating basis with an approximate completion time of 30 weeks per cab. The estimated date of completion for the full modernization of all passenger elevator cabs and parking shuttles is 2018.

WHAT IS THE DESTINATION DISPATCH PORT SYSTEM?

Scotia Plaza’s Destination Dispatch PORT provides an easy and effective way of reaching your destination. Instead of pressing traditional up/down buttons to call an elevator, you tell the system where you want to go before you enter the elevator. Knowing this information in advance, the system is able to assign elevators to passengers with common destinations. Your assigned elevator will then transport you and other passengers to your desired floors in the most efficient manner by making the fewest possible stops. How does this system benefit me?

The Destination Dispatch system ensures that you will have:

  • • less waiting time
  • • fewer stops
  • • shorter travel time

Destination Dispatch: a more efficient, reliable and comfortable ride.
