WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Metro-North is looking to expand its new liquid crystal display monitors to all of its stations by 2020.
The plan to have the new signs at all 71 stations was proposed this month. Metro-North is talking with NJ Transit åçregarding a similar program for its West of Hudson stations, as well as with Connecticut officials for its stations there. The new monitors display the departure time, real-time train status, track information and station stops for the next nine trains. Currently, there are 10 stations, including Tarrytown, Croton-Harmon, White Plains, North White Plains, New Rochelle and Larchmont, that have monitors providing real-time information and they have been well received by customers. Three stations -- Scarsdale, Mount Vernon West and Rye -- would be completed this year, with an average of 10 stations to be completed each year thereafter until the installation project's expected 2020 completion. The proposed 2014 stations include Ossining, Hartsdale, Bronxville, Mount Vernon East, Harrison and Pelham.
