The MTA Website Goes All 2.0

It's been almost 8 years since the MTA website had a full overhaul. Every other major transit system in the country has easy to use "trip navigators" prominently featured on their home pages, except the MTA.  Fortunately, when Jay Walder took over the authority last fall, it was his number one priority.  Now, after nearly four months, there are some lovely results.  

The new MTA website went live yesterday and it is filled with true functionality. It's also got info on the current conditions on all 25 subway lines, as well as the LIRR line and the NYC bridges and tunnels. There's also a handy link to a site that's built for PDA phones like the Blackberry or iPhone.  All in all, a great makeover that was long overdue.
