The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has partnered with technology company Control Group to bring subway commuters the “On The Go” interactive touchscreens. The new 47-inch displays will deliver real-time station directions including transfers and line alerts, countdowns until train arrival, and service updates, and will also include video cameras, microphones, and Wi-Fi.
The MTA will initiate a total of 90 touchscreens into the NYC subway system. They will feature many paid advertisers that will help offset installation costs. Looks like the two million commuters and tourists that ride the subways each day are in for a new, hi-tech experience!
