Navigating the subway system is about to get a little bit easier, thanks to the MTA.

They're installing these new flat-screen panels at stations around the city.

Riders will be able to check if trains are running on time throughout the entire system.

Plans for track work will also be displayed.

The high-tech screens are already up and running in Grand Central Terminal and the Atlantic Avenue station.
