The MBTA activated countdown signs Thursday at Downtown Crossing Station telling riders when the next trains will roll in, according to T spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

The station became the third in the public transit system, following the activation of electronic countdown displays at Park Street Station and South Station.

The MBTA began activating the signs last month, as the start of a pilot program that could be extended to all 51 Red, Orange, and Blue Line stations by the end of the year.
