Re: PATH Trains Increase

Why would anybody want a countdown clock at street level? You'll end up with a bunch of morons chaotically trying to cram themselves down the entrance to the station at the same time.
These exist at a ton of MTA stops and I've never seen a mad rush to reach a train.
They're virtually useless during rush hour, but would certainly be welcome during non-peak so that one doesn't enter the turnstiles with 10-20 minutes of waiting in a tunnel without climate control.
I predict it will just lead to constant disappointment. I wouldn't trust PATH management to accurately tell me when a train is going to arrive at all regardless of what the schedule or computerized real-time train movement monitoring says.
