During the 'Prototyping' phase, help the Mobilize New York semi-finalists to explore, test and develop their idea further ahead of the Mobilize New York community vote and final review phase. Within this workspace, you are invited to discuss the submission below with our semi-finalist.

 

If you live in outer boroughs and take express buses home, you likely use the TA's site to see what stops buses are currently at.

You've also noticed the site is too often wrong.

My elderly mother with bad knees took the X1 home. The site showed buses 2 and 5 stops away,

She waited 30 minutes! Maybe a bus was 30 minutes from the DEPOT, not 2 stops away!

The TA schedule site MUST be accurate to be useful. Digital seat capacity signs are a must.

Private buses should be held to the above standards also.
