NEW YORK (AP) - Transit advocates are praising members of the New York City Council for allocating almost $2.8 million dollars in the budget that was just approved for countdown clocks at bus stops.

Riders Alliance says the funds are enough to install more than 100 of the clocks at stops in all five boroughs. There are already clocks at two locations on Staten Island.

All of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s buses have been fitted with GPS devices. The clocks would use data from the GPS devices to let riders know how far away the buses are from their stops.
