If you’ve taken the subway in New York recently, you’ve surely seen the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s new slogan: “Improving, non-stop.”
In that spirt, the MTA has been making an admirable effort to make riders’ lives better by embracing new technology. More than 30 stations now have WiFi available (and cell service coming too!), and there are plans to get the remaining stations wired within the next five years.
More connectivity also means more opportunity for creative apps to improve the transit system. These, the MTA decided to crowdsource.
