A Brooklyn based startup is creating LED signs that display actual MTA train departures and delays. NYC Train Sign uses 3D printing for the sign base, LED displays and its own API to display up to date MTA data. Anyone can buy a train sign for $599; restaurants, bars and other businesses can lease signs for $29 a month, making it easier for customers to decide when to order their last drinks.

Signs can be programmed to show departure times for the B, D, L, N, Q, R and W train, and all number lines except for the 7, as will as be programmed to deliver the weather forecast or display other headlines. A number of Bushwick businesses have already stocked up on the signs. While smartphones apps also provide up-to-date train times, it’s not quite as cool or noticeable as a prominently displayed LED.
