The Examiner reports that the transit agency has started installing flat-screen TVs at station booths that will eventually list real-time advisories about delays, the status of every line and even broken elevators throughout the system.

So far, 88 kiosks have been outfitted with the TVs, and soon all 112 in the system will have them. While the screen currently only show the time, by the end of the year they will have all the information to help commuters decide if Metro is the way to go or not.
