MBTA Gets New Countdown Clocks, GM

The MBTA’s new general manager greeted T riders Monday morning and announced new countdown clocks at stations around the area.

Several T stations got new countdown clocks on the same day the MBTA announced its new general manager.

MBTA General Manager and Rail & Transit Administrator for MassDOT Beverly Scott greeted riders on the Blue Line platform at State Station and on the Orange Line to Chinatown Station Monday morning, while the T put online countdown clocks at 24 stations, according to an MBTA press statement.

There are now 190 clocks at 30 MBTA stations, with a majority of them servicing the Red, Orange and Blue lines, according to the statement. The clocks inform customers how long it will be before the next train arrives at a given stop.

In the statement, Scott had this to say about her first day on the job: “I am thrilled to begin work with the MBTA today. I know the T is a vital part of many peoples’ lives and I’m honored to be a part of its leadership team. I’m looking forward to getting to know our customers and helping improve their experience with us.”
