NYC Subway Gets Touchscreen That Tells You Where Delays Are

Cisco has sponsored a number of "Travel Stations" to be tested in a handful of subway stops. Dan Nosowitz went down to Bowling Green to try one out.

Nosowitz has good things to say about the Travel Station, which in addition to providing up-to-the-minute information on delays and alternate routes has a trip planner and subway map.

Nosowitz writes:

"I was actually pretty impressed with the Travel Station. It's very cleanly and clearly organized, with big buttons for Service Status, Elevators, MTA Maps, Key Destinations (...), a Trip Planner, and Planned Work listed all along the bottom of the usable portion of the screen."
