61 neighbors want the MTA to install the electronic arrival-time clocks in ALL subway stations in Manhattan.

Progress
Edward
Electronic arrival-time clocks allow subway riders to be more in control of their commute. You can, for example, determine which line to take (express vs. local), whether you have time to make a quick call, or whether you should avoid the subway and rather walk, bike or take a taxi. So far, electronic arrival-time clocks are in some of the subway stations, but not all. Let's let the MTA know that we want this to be a priority.

"Back in 2015, when riding the subway was but one fixture of our complicated lives, when we slept the sleep of the innocent, then-MTA chairman Thomas Prendergast suggested that installing subway countdown clocks might be a superfluous part of the agency’s budget. But this is 2017, year of the Sweaty Subterranean Hand, year of reckoning. As part of his $800 million emergency overhaul of the system, current part-time MTA Chairman Joe Lhota has assured us that the countdown clocks, stalled for years, will be finished by the end of the year. And like a screeching hawk soaring auspiciously above our forest of madness, the C lines now all have countdown clocks. A small, tangible blow against wickedness."

I just checked and NextBus is available for the the # 63 bus in Brooklyn
and many routes in Staten Island. Maybe we should start a campaign to get this coverage extended to all bus routes, the NYC subway, Long Island Railroad and Metro North.

For # 63 bus in Brooklyn:

For Staten Island:

Whenever I visit the San Francisco Bay Area, I find NEXT BUS to be extremely helpful

and have integration with above-ground (web-based) knowledge of when trains are due to arrive. this is also part of the Bay Area infrastructure via nextbus.

This was definitely something where I was pleasantly surprised by BART vs. MTA. I can't believe NYC doesn't have these yet-- especially because phone reception often dies when you go underground to grab the train so you you're unable to check times.
