As part of the new MTA Live Media Program, four digital communication screens have been installed, as a test, in an LIRR M7 car. Live screens have been installed in many LIRR stations, as well as in subway stations and in Grand Central Terminal. Through this program, more than 53,000 screens will be installed across subways and railroads.
These screens enable the LIRR to target messages to specific stations and to communicate with passengers. Ultimately the screens will be part of a system-wide digital ecosystem to keep passengers informed. Full rollout of digital communications screens in cars is scheduled to begin in third quarter 2019.
