The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and Benaroya Hall completed the installation of two real-time bus information displays at the busy southbound bus stop on Third Avenue between Union and University streets. The 40-inch LCD monitors show riders the estimated wait times for buses and are part of a pilot program that has installed a total of six real-time signs along Third Avenue.
