NYC to install touchscreen subway kiosks with directions, schedules, real-time alerts
Later this year, New York City will begin installing interactive “On The Go” subway kiosks that will assist tourists in getting from station to station. The 47-inch touchscreen displays will be encased in ruggedized steel and placed (in pairs, more often than not) throughout the city. Tapping any subway station will immediately chart out the best route of getting there, and the kiosks — designed in conjunction with Control Group — will count down to a train’s arrival and list any delays or outages commuters should be aware of. A digital content loop (likely to include plenty of advertising) will also be displayed.
