The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) now has installed and activated countdown clocks at all Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corp. (PATH) stations on the Newark-World Trade Center (WTC) line.

The authority also is in the process of installing real-time displays at all other stations in the PATH system. The countdown clocks are designed to display real-time arrival information for the next two trains coming into a station.

In addition, next-train information is expected to be available within 30 days on RidePath, PATH's mobile app.

"This is an important milestone in our effort to provide real-time actionable and useful information to PATH riders," said PANYNJ Executive Director Rick Cotton in a press release.

By January's end, countdown clocks are expected to be activated at the Hoboken and Newport stations, the fare zone at 33rd Street and the downtown /outbound platforms at the 14th and 23rd Street stations. The Christopher Street, 9th Street and the uptown/inbound platforms at 14th and 23rd Street stations are scheduled for countdown clock activation by February's end.

"We believe that by providing next-train information through mobile devices, we're giving our customers essential information to help them plan and complete their ride on PATH," said PANYNJ Chief Technology Officer Robert Galvin.
