WOODLAWN - One Bronx Metro-North station has some new technology that can't be seen anywhere else in the city.

The Woodlawn Metro-North station now has solar-powered kiosks that will help commuters stay on schedule with train and subway times.

The MTA is testing out two machines in a pilot program. The MTA says that the new kiosks are eco-friendly, which is something that commuters say they are on board with.

The kiosk also does not have cords, wires or electricity, making it easy to put anywhere.

In the event of rain or clouds, the MTA says the kiosk can run for 10 days on stored power.

Both of the kiosks were donated by the manufacturer. If the MTA decides to expand the program, it'll have to take over the costs at $10,000 per machine.
