NEW YORK (AP) - More digital countdown clocks are coming to New York City’s lettered subway lines.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it’ll also be installing more digital information screens on buses.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that the countdown clocks will be tested over 90 days in eight stations along the N, Q and R lines. The plan is to eventually expand the program to all 269 lettered line stations.

Countdown clocks already serve 176 stations.

The MTA also is conducting a pilot program on digital information screens on 131 buses. Ultimately, the screens will be installed on all 3,600 buses.

It’s all part of the MTA’s $27 billion five-year capital program.
