New MTA Website Brings Authority Into 20th Century


The MTA has revamped its website, reports the NY Times, with the new site debuting tomorrow. Maps, fares and directions are just a click or two away, not buried in the nether regions of the site.

Service alerts also get a much more prominent spot on the site. Reports the Times:

Real-time updates on delays and service changes might prevent that trip to Brooklyn from becoming an all-night odyssey.

“We’re not cutting-edge; let’s not kid ourselves. But we’re getting closer,” said Jay H. Walder, the new chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, who said he ordered a revamp last fall on his first day on the job.

A quick glance at the home page suggests a site designed for users, not for transit bureaucrats.
