Am I reading correctly? Are we finally getting some of the 'Electronic Displays' promised for quite a while now? We haven't even got clocks at the newer stations, like Brentwood used to have, like Whitehorn has as far as I know still has. We don't have anything resembling technology newer than the invention of the escalator or elevator, really. New stations don't even have public phones, as a friend of mine found out when his cell phone died.
I look forward eagerly to even a clock (showing what time CT thinks it is) at any bus loop. I also look forward to the electronic displays and new ticket machines that were promised a year or two ago. Weren't those funded and supposed to be implemented sometime this or next year?
I like that they're replacing the somewhat aged bus shelters, and I hope some of the other bus loops get the same treatment. And the stations, getting the treatment Whitehorn is getting (particularly the 29 year old south ones).
As an aside: I can see my home in that picture.
