There is no current plan, nor funding in place, for TfL to increase the number of Countdown signs at bus stops across London. However, London boroughs have been offered the option of purchasing new signs through secured Section 106 funding or alternative private purchase funding streams.

TfL is working to develop a means of displaying real time bus arrival information at bus stations and other busy interchange environments using their digital sign technology. Nine of these digital signs have been installed at bus stations, with two signs at Harrow, Walthamstow and North Greenwich bus stations and one sign each at Vauxhall, East Croydon and Victoria Coach station. Hatton Cross station has been selected as a potential location for a digitial sign and work is underway to assess the site for feasibility. If suitable, the location will be placed on the programme for the 2016/17 financial year.
