Countdown signs went live this week at 24 MBTA stations, including the Blue Line platform of State Street Station pictured above.

The MBTA this week activated countdown signs at 24 stations to tell riders when the next trains will roll in, officials said.

There are now 30 stations that have the signs activated and another 22 scheduled to see them go live in early 2013, according to T spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

“Countdown signs are just one more innovation the MBTA has unleashed in recent months to make the customer experience more convenient and take some of the guesswork out of riding the T,” Joshua K. Robin, the T’s director of innovation, said in a statement.

The MBTA began activating the signs in August, as the start of a program that will extend to all Red, Orange, and Blue Line stations. The Green Line will not have countdowns because its system for tracking trains is not as sophisticated, officials have said.
