Countdown to countdown clocks now mostly over for Red, Blue and Orange lines

All but Orient Heights on the Blue Line and Charles/MGH now have electronic countdown clocks to let passengers know when the next train should arrive, the MBTA says.

The T adds it's improved the algorithms used to calculate arrival times, in particular at stations right at the beginning and end of lines, for "an elevated Countdown experience."

Orient Heights, currently under renovation, should get its clocks when overall renovations are done in 2014; Charles/MGH this fall.

The Green Line could get countdown clocks sometime before the end of the century.
