More digital screens coming to subway stations by year's end

Some 153 On the Go Travel kiosks should be installed and running by the end of theMTA

The MTA said more digital screens that assist riders with planning their trip will be ready to go by the end of the year.

There are 30 stations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens that have the interactive screens, called an “On the Go Travel Station,” and the MTA said 153 of the screens will be ready to use by the end of 2014.

The screens are funded by a public-private partnership between New York City Transit, Outfront Media and Control Group NYC, and began as a pilot program three years ago.

According to the MTA, some 1.2 million riders have access to the digital transit information every day.

Prendergast said . “Having a digital platform for customers to obtain travel information, while simultaneously giving us the ability to communicate with them is a huge step forward in our efforts to provide timely information to customers at the point of transit decision making.”
