MTA has big projects underway and planned. The 7 train will begin a 5-weeknd-stretch of shutdowns from Times Square to Queensboro Plaza tonight just before midnight.
Shuttle buses will be running. MTA says, “Planned service changes, like those scheduled for this fall and for the next several years, allow this vital project to move ahead.”
The on-going project involves the installation of a new signal system. New countdown clocks are possible with this new computer-based train technology.
Do you have ideas for improving the subway and buses?
Riders Alliance, a grassroots movement for transit riders, sponsored a gallery to showcase one rider’s ideas for improving the subway this week at Soho Gallery For Digital Art at 138 Sullivan Street. Randy Gregory created this site improvesubway.tumblr.com where posted an idea a day for 100 days. Gregory sys he met with a representative from the MTA.
You can submit ideas here and also to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Riders Alliance plans to submit some of the ideas to the MTA.
