MBTA Commuter Rail customers waiting for their train will soon get real-time information about the status of their trains.
Transportation Secretary James Aloisi and MBTA General Manager Daniel Grabauskas visited North Station to introduce “Next Train” technology that will provide customers with on board announcements and information on LED signs in stations.
Approximately 25 additional signs will be installed at 12 commuter rail stations, and 110 existing signs will be replaced. The new equipment is now being tested on the Haverhill Line as well as other lines on both the North and South sides. The equipment should be installed throughout the system by the end of summer.
