Around 1 p.m., the MBTA turned on a new electronic signboard at Forest Hills to alert bus riders when their bus is due at the station.
In a statement, T General Manager Beverly Scott says:
I've often said our buses are the work horses of our system, serving more than 375,000 people on a typical weekday. The countdown signs at our busiest bus stops will provide customers with information that will make their public transit experience easier and more convenient.
The T reports Dudley - the T's busiest bus station - will get a countdown clock this spring, followed by Ruggles sometime this summer (replacing an old Orange Line countdown signboard).
Eight more signs will also be installed this summer, tentatively at Harvard, Haymarket, Ashmont, Kenmore, Maverick, Wonderland, Jackson Square and Central Square.
