TfL is not phasing out countdown facilities. There is no programme underway to remove Countdown signs already installed at bus stops. During shelter upgrade work, Countdown signs may be temporarily removed. Once the shelter work is fully completed, including the electrical connection and final wiring, arrangements are made to have Countdown signs reinstalled. Further details can be found in my previous response to MQ 3753 /2013.
