Building A Better Subway Countdown Clock

Countdown clocks have been popping up in subway stations with more frequency. The MTA hopes to have 152 stations throughout the city operational by the end of 2011.  2nd Avenue Sagas has a good analysis of the pros and cons of what we’ve seen from the new system so far, and what plans lie ahead…

“As far as transit technology goes, the MTA’s shiny new countdown clocks leave much to be desired. While the authority now has access to tons of real-time information about train location, its only public presentation of that data is via the countdown clocks, and they suffer from a basic rudimentariness.”
