The tram experience in Amsterdam

Going to another country is always an opportunity to stumble upon interesting examples of design in public spaces. Below the monitor on the tram number 10 in Amsterdam, indicating, from left to right, the next stop (« Volgende halte »), the 4 stops to come after that and the destination (« Bestemming »). The tram line number is in the left bottom corner, not very visible on this picture (taken with my mobile).
I am quite a fan of Dutch design, which I usually find clear and efficient, even if this particular example is aesthetically not the most elegant. Add to this display a friendly voice saying ‘The next stop is…’ and you get a very reassuring user experience of public transport, especially for the tourists who, unlike me, do not know the city.
