The Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) is slowly replacing old boards indicating train timings between Beach and Velachery.
This is the type of display that one finds in some stations, while at others, it is still old-style painted boards. The board in the picture is found at Chintadripet MRTS station. It would be helpful to commuters if a similar board is kept at the bus stop at P.Orr and Sons on Anna Salai, about 500 metres from the Station and at the Simpsons stop closer to the Station. This is not a new idea. There was a board even before the Velachery service was started, but that has decayed and virtually disappeared.
Buses going towards Egmore, Kodambakkam, K.K.Nagar, Saligramam, and Korukkupet stop at Simpsons. It would be helpful to commuters if the MRTS timings are displayed here along with fares and details of season passes.
Apparently, modern train information systems are yet to make an entry on the system.
