“We’re delighted to take the next step to further improve the digital information that makes traveling on the LIRR easier and more rewarding,” said LIRR President Helena Williams in a statement. “Now, our customers will be able to get access to the same convenient information offered by real-time electronic signs on our platforms, before they get to the station.”
