That long-awaited system has finally made its debut at Longwood Av on the (6). Its not up around the clock yet, but at least its up.

Great news, though I feel bad for our letter-train riding friends, who have to wait until 2014 at the earliest for such advanced technology.

Brook Avenue is now under testing, and Longwood is now working around the clock.

Best bet is to go to Longwood Av. Its interesting that they started on the (6) I thought the (1) would be the easiest to implement being that its 2 tracks north of 96th (M track isnt used for service) like the L. Got two terminals on the 6, and M track is used for service during the weekdays.

On a side note... demographically speaking (you know they care about that), Longwood, E149th, etc are in downtrodden areas compared to 103rd-125th on the 1 line. Other then the article last month featuring Walder saying they will start the pilot by the end of last month (not bad for MTA, about a week late), I havent seen a peep about this pilot in any paper.

I'd really like to see this... but I can't really understand why they picked that area. Not that many people use those stations.

Good question but its the least used stations on the 6. I Rather see it used from Phelam bay to parkchester and then expand it, imo.

Its on the L in a unrelated project - CBTC. The concept arrived on that line a few years back already. It works well at every station along the line. What is interesting about this pilot is the public assumed that it would come to the rest of the subway lines much sooner than it has. It was touted then that the technology was coming "soon" to the numbered lines. They were only in the process of installing the program monitors when I got hired in 2006.

Article Here

The signs are currently at 5 stations in the Bronx: Brook Avenue, Cypress Avenue, E.143rd Street-St. Mary's Street, E. 149th Street and Longwood Avenue. These stations were the first stations where the ATS and PA/CIS systems were completed, so these stations will enjoy the new signs first. The signs will rollout on the rest of the IRT by the end of March 2011 (a little over a year from now), with the exceptions of the 7, and the 2/5 in the Bronx.

I saw the report on CBS 2 News on Christmas Eve and ever since, I've been trying to catch glimpses of the clocks when I'm on the 6. I must say the bits that I see seem to be working. It tends to say "System under Test" or something like that and it seems to show when the train is arriving cause the "6 Pelham Bay Park" is lit a different color than the bottom one. I think this is going to be great and I can't wait till they take it further up the line and I can really use it for myself.

Happy New Years everybody!!!

Thanks for the update! The real effects should be felt as it moves north to Parkchester and Pelham Bay Park, and south to the major stations on the Lexington Ave. line.

Here's a question: Would they put them at Pelham Bay Park to let passengers know when the train is leaving?

The monitors are installed at most A divison stations, including some terminals. Yes, they are at Pelham.

Hunts Point Av has been turned on (not working but the guys were out there today), interesting to see that one as its the first place where information on two tracks (express and local trains) needs to be displayed
