BROOKLYN - The MTA is starting a pilot program that aims to get service information to commuters before they pay.

The new technology will be installed at the Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street hub and will offer a sign called the advisory information display, as well as train-arrival information signs and a help-point intercom.

Straphangers say knowing the status of a subway train before they pay is crucial, especially with recent fare hikes.

MTA officials say after the pilot program is completed, they will conduct market research on what customers thought of the information and to see where the best places to display the information would be.
