I was at Forest Hills, and got to see the new bus countdown clocks in action! Let’s see, the 39 leaves in nine minutes…but there’s a bus right out there! Fine, I’m just going to go look at the Commuter Rail platform. Be right back. Okay, apparently it’s still nine minutes until the next 39. But I was gone for five! Do I have to push this button on the side to update it? No, that doesn’t do anything. The 39 will never come, apparently.
It’s so shiny… but shiny apparently doesn’t mean functional.
